The generalized two-dimensional Peierls–Nabarro (PN) model7 for studying interfaces is developed further, where an exact generalized stacking fault energy γ-surface obtained from ab initio calculations acts as an input function for the generalized PN model. Using the multiscale modeling techniques, which combines elastic theory with ab initio calculations, the structure and energy of the Al/MgO(100) interface are studied, and the effectiveness of this method is demonstrated.
