Classical interatomic bond-order potentials (BOPs) have previously been obtained by coarse-graining the quantum-mechanical electronic structure within the chemically intuitive reduced tight-binding (TB) framework. This paper generalizes the reduced tight-binding approximation to the case of multicomponent sp-valent systems, thereby allowing a rigorous derivation of expressions for the and bond orders within chemically heterogeneous situations. The close link between the different bond-order… CONTINUE READING
