A theory of hydrogen chemisorption on close-packed facecentered-cubic crystal surfaces is presented. The close packing effects are taken into account by solving the local electronic density of states in the Husimi cactus model. The calculation is based on the Anderson-Newns Hamiltonian. Results are given for the local densities of states, at the adatom and at the atoms over which the hydrogen is chemisorbed.
