Full Development Of Pseudopotentials That Work For All Elements

L Ezenwaka, L Ezenwaka

Abstract




The form factors of pseudopotential that works for all elements is fully developed. The plane wave matrix element of pseudopotential is evaluated. In addition, the linear coefficients parameter A¡ are calculated by the use of tables of Bachelet et al. (1982) as well as the prescription of Pattnaik et al.(1979) which eliminated the numerical instability problems. The liquid metal resistivity is evaluated using Simpson's rule.

Keywords: Pseudopotential, liquid metal resistivity, matrix element, linear coefficients, inverse orthogonality transformation.
