Abstract

The first step in this work was a study of the augmented plane wave method in general and Louck’s programs in particular. The next stage was to adopt these programs for use on the 360 IBM Computer at Northern Illinois University. Several materials were then studied, especially beryllium and silicon. The results of a preliminary study of the band dependence of silicon with lattice constant was reported and analyzed for its failures and predictions. Finally some suggestions for further work were noted.
