The energies for migration of vacancies and adatoms and the adatom formation energy at surfaces with low indices have been calculated for aluminum, nickel, copper, palladium, silver, platinum, and gold using the inserted atom method. We have found the self-diffusion activation energies for the jumpwise diffusion mechanism with participation of both types of surface point defect.
