Structure and properties of small clusters of transition 3d-element nitrides

Abstract

The results of calculations of the parameters of the equilibrium structures of small clusters of transition 3d-element nitrides are presented. The calculations are performed by the spin-unrestricted Hartree-Fock method. The properties of the most stable structures, i.e., those with the lowest total energies among all those obtained, are discussed.
