Abstract

The structural stability and energetics of 3- to 7-atom microclusters of the bcc elements Li, Na, K, Cs and Fe have been investigated by using a recently developed empirical many-body potential energy function (PEF), which comprices two- and three-body atomic interactions. The PEF satisfies both bulk cohesive energy per atom and bulk stability exactly.
