This is important for two related reasons. First, it allows us to determine groundstate crystal structures very effectively. This has become possible only recently for relatively complex structures such as MgSiO3 perovskite [27]. 3 Computation 31 has been the development of a structural optimization strategy based on a pseudoLagrangian that treats the components of the strain tensor and the atomic positions as dynamical variables [28]. The optimization is performed at constant pressure. At each step of the dynamical trajectory, the Hellman-Feynman forces and stresses [29] acting on the nuclei and the lattice parameters, respectively, are evaluated and used to generate the next configuration.
