Despite their use in a variety of applications, the fundamental properties of metal­ceramic interfaces are
still poorly understood. Historically, this has been due to experimental complications associated with the
study of a buried interface, and to theoretical difficulties caused by complex interfacial bonding interactions.
However, the advent of first-principles techniques based on Density Functional Theory (DFT) has led to new
