Abstract

The metallization lattice constant for fcc Xe has been calculated in three different, independent ways. The result is relatively insensitive to basis set, details of local exchange-correlation potential, or use of the muffin-tin potential. The calculated metallization lattice constant is 7.9 a.u. or P=1.28 Mbar, confirming Ross and McMahan's calculation but disagreeing with Nelson and Ruoff's experimental value. © 1980 The American Physical Society.
