Table 3 Lattice parameters: aexp obtained by Eq. (2) using experimental lattice parameters; atheor calculated from Eq. (2), but with optimized lattice parameters at the PAW/LDA level for Ge and GaAs; acalc the PAW/LDA optimized lattice parameters for models I, IIa, IIb, and III. (Italic is for values extrapolated as3√V.)
