Abstract:

A simple physical model of a copper crystal surface was developed. Atoms were considered as quasi-hard spheres which occupied perfect lattice positions. A computer simulation, based on energy consideration only, using the Monte Carlo method was developed, tested and used to study equilibrium surface microstates. Author
