    • Abstract


      The binding energies to copper, silver and gold (111) surfaces of self-atom clusters have been calculated. The activation energies of motion of these ad-atom clusters, vacancies and divacancies on copper, silver and gold (111) surface, and of the conversion of ad-atom clusters on (111) and (100) have been calculated by use ofn-body embedded atom potentials and molecular dynamics.
