Dear Azam
Many excellent books could help you to understand how a band structure works. 
I recommend you to look at the following web sites:

Just a brief answer, but you must read about band structure before doing WIEN2k 
calculations to my point of view. Indeed this periodic code is based on k 
points. So ... the Gamma point is the center of the Brillouin zone which is in 
the reciprocal space, i.e. the space defined by the wave-vectors (k points). It 
allows to define Bloch functions which are a product of a molecular orbital 
(defined in the unit cell) and a periodic function (dependent on the k point). 

The Gamma point is defined by three numbers (0 0 0), meaning kx = 0, ky = 0 and 
kz = 0. Indeed, the reciprocal space has three dimension as the real space. In 
the case of a cubic symmetry (or orthorhombic) a* = 2.pi / a, b* = 2.pi /b and 
c* = 2.pi /c. I will not do all the teaching of the band structure theory but 
you can find all these details in books and websites. 

Good luck
