A plane wave pseudo-potential method based on density functional theory is employed to calculate the migration energy barrier for the atomic self-diffusion in HCP metals including Mg, Zn, Ti, Zr, and Hf. The influences of some key factors (plane-wave cutoff energy, k-mesh, supercell size, and geometric optimization scheme) on the calculated migration energy barrier and its anisotropy are systematically...
