Abstract

Using first-principles total-energy calculations the lattice relaxation, surface energy, work function and surface phonons have been determined for the Pt(100)-surface. Calculation of forces allows for a very efficient determination of equilibrium geometries and interplanar force constants. Results will be presented and compared with available experimental information.
