A First-Principles Approach to Replacive + Displacive Transformation

Tetsuo Mohri

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


First-principles approach to alloy phase stability is outlined and recent application to the Bain transformation is introduced. A combination of the electronic structure calculation with statistical thermodynamics based on the Cluster Variation Method is quite powerful to clarify the interplay between the replacive and displacive natures in the transformation.
