Surface and bulk properties of Zn, Cd, and ZnCd systems have been investigated by performing molecular-dynamics simulations using a recently developed empirical many-body potential energy function for these systems, which comprices two- and three-body atomic interactions. Surface reconstruction and multilayer relaxation on clean surfaces, adatom on surface, substitutional atom on surface and bulk materials, and vacancy on surface and bulk materials have been studied extensively.
