Unformatted text preview: I As mentioned during the last lecture, for d transition metals (e.g, Pt), the cohesive energy is dominated by the d-band contribution I Therefore, a rectangular N i can be assumed with a width W i so that the N i per atom for a full d-band becomes 10 / W I Then, the bond energy per site i can be written as V i B - 1 20 W i N d ( 10- N d ) , (13) where N d is the number of electrons in the d-band I W is related to the second moment of the N i via 2 i = Z - E 2 N i ( E ) d E = 10 12 W 2 i (14) I On the other hand, the second moment can be given directly as a sum the two-center hopping integrals h ij , which depend on the next neighbor distance r ij : 2 i = 10 X j 6 = i h 2 ( r ij ) (15) I Combining these, we get 1 12 W 2 i = X j 6 = i h 2 ( r ij ) (16) I Applying this to the total energy expression, we get U = 1 2 X i X j 6 = i ( r ij ) - D v u u u u t X j 6 = i h 2 ( r ij ) | {z } i (17) I Indentifying the sum of the hopping integrals as the resulting electron density i leads to the Rosato group potentials I Defining an embedding function...
