Using the revised Tao-Perdew-Staroverov-Scuseria (revTPSS) metageneralized gradient approximation, a computationally efficient semilocal functional, we studied the desorption energies of the molecule CO on the (111) surfaces of transition metals as well as the surface energies and lattice constants of the underlying transition metals. Due to its ability to distinguish single-orbital regions from regions of high orbital overlap, revTPSS improves all three properties over the Perdew-Burke… CONTINUE READING
