Abstract Ab initio modeling of materials has become routine in recent years, largely due to the success of density functional theory (DFT). However, for many processes in materials, realism is achieved only when millions of atoms are considered. Currently, such large scale simulations are beyond ab initio capabilities so that one has to resort to effective interatomic potentials that well represent ab initio data on smaller scales. Two of the more widely used types of interatomic potentials are embedd...
