Abstract 



The aim of this study is to explain how a quantum network can be used as simple model to calculate complex band structures. The paper contains an introduction, a mathematical exposure of the method, and applications to graphene, boron nitride, and polyacetylene chains. Using a quantum network is a simple, intuitive, and, yet, rather accurate way to obtain a band structure for a complex material. One focus here is to invoke physical and chemical intuition to construct the effective onebody potential along the wires of a quantum network.
