[lammps-users] References for EAM potentials

Hi all,

There are several EAM potential provided in the potential directory for Cu, anyone knows
the exact reference for each of them? What is the difference between Cu_u3 and Cu_u6?
Besides, inside Cu_u6, it’s said to be “universal 4” instead of 6.


All the citation info I know is included with the files. Some are from the
original EAM authors, so if you went back to their original couple
of papers, you'd probably find plots that match these functionals.
