POTASSIUM AT HIGH PRESSURE - ANOMALY IN THE 500 KBAR REGIME
Scalar relativistic augmented spherical wave (ASW) band structure calculations are presented for K which predict a strong equation of state anomaly due to 4sp 3rd electron reordering in the 500 kbar regime. Consequences for the phase diagram are outlined using the Lindemann melting law. The relation to other work is discussed including experimental results.
