Interatomic potentials in condensed matter via the maximum-entropy principle

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

10 Scopus citations


A general method is described for the calculation of interatomic potentials in condensed-matter systems by use of a maximum-entropy Ansatz for the interatomic correlation functions. The interatomic potentials are given explicitly in terms of statistical correlation functions involving the potential energy and the structure factor of a ̂>reference medium.̂> Illustrations are given for Al-Cu alloys and a model transition metal.
