42) can be used to predict x(p, T ), the volume, V (p, T ), and the equilibrium Gibbs function G(p, T ) of a crystal at any given pressure and temperature. 41) for a large number of x and V values, is prohibitive. A common approach to simplify this problem is to restrict the variables x to those resulting from a minimization of the electronic (static) energy at any given volume: xopt (V ) from Esta (V ) = min Esta (x, V ). 43) If no crystal vibrations were present, then Fvib would disappear, and this approach would be strictly correct.

This statement emerged from the works by Richards, Nernst and Simon in the first decade of the past century. Based on the arbitrary choice that the entropy of each element is zero at 0 K, the Nernst–Simon statement of the third law is used to find conventional entropies of compounds: S0 = 0 for each element or compound in internal equilibrium, where the zero subscript represents 0 K conditions [15]. Microscopically, the entropy is related to the number of microscopic states available to an isolated system for a given volume, internal energy, and number of particles.

For instance, there is a sizable error in the prediction of the equilibrium geometries of many solids that varies depending on the exchange-correlation functional chosen [47–49]. Also, non-covalent interactions are poorly described by common DFT methods, requiring specialized exchange-correlation functionals incorporating dispersion corrections. , molecular crystals) is still an unsolved problem [28, 50–53]. In addition, comparing calculated thermodynamic and observed transition pressures is affected by the usual kinetic (hysteresis) effects in the latter [46].
