A Pseudopotential Approach to Some Problems in Binary Alloys of Simple Metals
Some recent calculations of binary alloy properties are described. The importance of choosing a good pseudopotential is stressed and it is pointed out that a wide variety of physical properties can be calculated successfully without any experimental input. Specializing to the alloy problem, homovalent simple metal alloys appear to be well described by pseudopotential techniques but finite concentrations of non-homovalent impurities appear to present some difficulties beyond the scope of standard pseudopotential approaches.
