New J. Chem. 22, 733-744 (1998)


Using a Monte Carlo minimization approach we report the global minima for metal clusters modelled by the Sutton-Chen family of potentials with N<81, where N is the number of atoms. The resulting structures are discussed in the light of both experimental and theoretical data for clusters of the appropriate elements.
