Abstract
Ab initio molecular dynamics calculations, based upon density functional theory within the generalised gradient
Z .approximation GGA using ultrasoft non-norm conserving Vanderbilt pseudopotentials, have been used to predict the
transport properties of liquid Fe­S. In order to compare our simulations with experimental data, the simulations were
performed for the eutectic composition of Fe­S at the experimentally accessible conditions of 5 GPa and of 1300 and 1500
