> I have a set of Brillouin zone data. That is, there's a kx, ky, and a kz 
followed by an energy value. How can I select particular directions in the 
Brillouin zone out of this data and make a 2D plot of it. A k value followed by 
an energy value. For instance, say I want to plot along the kx axis. I would 
need to select all kx values such that ky and kz were zero and grab the 
matching energy value for the kx value. Or if I wanted to plot along a (110) 
direction, I would need to grab all kx=ky values with kz=0, along with the 
corresponding energy. Get my drift?
