Bohun, C.S. and Gravesen, J. and Laurie, H. and Hansen, J. (2006) Polar plots of diamond surface energy. [Study Group Report]
Diamond surface energy sigma_hkl determines crystal habit. We discuss three aspects of a paper by Terentiev (1991).
Firstly, we compare Terentiev's algorithm for exact sigma_hkl with the analytic solution for h <= k <= l and h + k < l.
Secondly, we show that the general formula given by Terentiev should be interpreted probabilistically in order to be self consistent.
Finally, we replicate in principle the simulation results for sigma_hkl in a nickel melt using nothing more than Matlab routines.
