Title: Energetics of point defects in {gamma}-TiAl

{gamma}TiAl has been receiving a great deal of attention in recent times owing to its industrial importance. This structural intermetallic is a candidate material for high temperature aerospace applications. Therefore, a study of point defect properties is useful in elucidating its physical metallurgy. In this brief communication, the authors discuss the vacancy and antisite defect properties of {gamma}-TiAl.
