Title: Electronic and thermal properties of TiFe{sub 2} compound: An ab initio study

A systematic study of electronic, and thermal properties such as the Density of states, Fermi energy, Debye temperature and specific heat coefficient, has been carried out using the results of electronic bandstructure and related characteristics of the Laves phase compound, TiFe{sub 2}. Computation of electronic bandstructure and associated properties has been carried out using the tight-binding-linear-muffin-tin-orbital (TB-LMTO) method within atomic sphere approximation (ASA). The calculated values are compared with the available results of literature.
