A parameter lacking in a journal paper...


There is an erratum in the JAP journal paper (Ref.[1]) by Bonny et al about tungsten-rhenium EAM potential. The parameters for $V_\mathrm{WRe}$ listed in the paper, cubic spline with 5 knots, were not sufficient and the following 6th knot should be added.

r_6 = 4.2
a_6 = -0.25133241

I extracted these numbers by numerical derivative of raw data provided in Ref.[2], so the precision of the data may not be so high.
