- about chapter 2

Hello :

doing some reading in physics and some of it is in solid state physics , in Ashcroft- mermin book chapter 2 page 33 you read

" Thus if our metal is one dimensional we would simply replace the line from 0 to L to which the electron were confined by a circle of circumference L. In three dimensions the geometrical embodiment of the boundary condition , in which three pairs of opposite faces on the cube are joint , becomes topologically impossible to construct in three dimensional space "

the above is not very clear to me could some one provide references to above paragraph or a short explanation

Best Regards
