Concepts in Aurface Physics presents a tutorial treatment of the main concepts and phenomena of the physics of crystal surfaces. Emphasis is placed on simplified calculations - and the corresponding detailed analytical derivations - that are able to throw light on the most important physical mechanisms. More rigorous techniques, which often require a large amount of computer time, are also explained. The topics treated include thermodynamic and statistical properties of clean nd adsorbate-covered surfaces, atomic structure, vibrational properties, electronic structure, and the theory of physisorption and chemisorption. As well as including some improvements on the original book, this second edition has been supplemented with problems to encourage students to investigate the subject more thoroughly.After an integration by parts of (5.6.23), we find the electrostatic potential energy of an electron which, added to the exchange and correlation potentials, gives Ze2 . |~1 a#39; Vj(r) = + 47re - J p (ra#39;)r dra#39; a J p (ra#39;)ra#39;dra#39; r I r n iagt; L^ 0 RMT + Vxc[p-(r)] + Vcanbsp;...
