I want to calculate the band parity at some TRIM (time-reversal invariant momentum) point in Brillouin zone. Parity was defined as the eigenvalue of the inversion operator. My question is how to construct the matrix representation of the parity operator to calculate the band parity at a TRIM point given a crystal and the tight binding matrix?
