Ab Initio Density Study of N and O Coadsorption on Pt(100) and Pt(111)
(20091113)We have used ab initio density functional theory to study the coadsorption of N and O on Pt(100) and Pt(111) surfaces. Our calculations show that on Pt(100) the most favourable site is the hollow site for N and the bridge ...

Analysis of Magneto Hemodynamics of Blood in a Stenosed Artery
