## Many-atom interactions in solids: proceedings of the international workshop, Pajulahti, Finland, June 5-9, 1989This book, of interest to researchers and advanced students of theoretical condensed matter physics, reports on the rapidly developing field of calculation of total energies and interatomic interactions in solids. The various contributions present exact and approximate schemes for obtaining realistic many-atom interactions, describe applications in static and dynamic computer simulations of low-symmetry systems, and discuss in detail embedded-atom models, tight-binding models, and ab initio molecular dynamics. |
