Abstract | A perturbation theory is developed to calculate solid-liquid interfacial free energies, including anisotropy. The method is applied to systems with inverse-power and Lennard-Jones pair potentials as well as to metal systems with embedded-atom model potentials. The results are in reasonable agreement with the corresponding ones obtained from molecular dynamics simulations. |
