The structural, electronic, elastic, bonding and thermal properties of CoX (X=Ti, Zr and Hf) have been investigated using ab initio full potential linearized augmented plane wave (FP-LAPW) method within generalized gradient approximation (GGA). The ground state and electronic properties such as lattice constant (a0), bulk modulus (B), pressure derivative of bulk modulus (B′) and density of states...
