Energetics of Solid Surfaces: Clusters and Anticlusters, Generalized Liquid-Drop Model, Energy Density, Stress Field, and Rigorous Theorems

  • Paul Ziesche
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 337)


Bulk and (planar) surface energies of solids are more or less reliably known from density-functional theory (DFT) or from experiment. Unfortunately these quantities refer to idealized systems, which do not exist in reality, where solids are always finite. Thus their surfaces are necessarily curved. However little is known about the energetics of curved solid surfaces. Only during the last years a period started in solid state and surface science which will bring more light to all quantities characterizing curved solid surfaces energetically.
