Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 360)


The vibrational free energy contributions in self diffusion on the (100) surfaces of Ag, Cu, and Ni and for step descent on Ag(100) via the exchange and the hopping mechanism are calculated using interaction potentials from the Embedded Atom Method. These contributions are found to be significant and lead to good agreement with experimental data where available.
