Lead and the Pb-Bi eutectic (Pb 55.9 at.%) have been modeled by a n-body potential derived from a second moment approximation of a tight binding Hamiltonian. The thermal behavior of the two systems in the liquid phase has been reproduced and relevant structural parameters have been evaluated and compared with experimental data. The diffusion coefficients and the activation energy for diffusion have been also evaluated. © 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
