Electronic Structure and Phase Stability Properties in Ternary Substitutional Alloys


Electronic structure and stability properties of ternary-metal alloys are examined using an extension of the Coherent Potential Approximation-Generalized Perturbation Method approach within the Tight-Binding description of the chemically random alloy. In particular, we report on calculations of density of states, mixing energies and effective cluster interactions which build up the ordering energy. The study focuses on the Ti-V-Fe system and its binary components.
