Title
A brief onesentence description of this Property Definition.
 Dislocation core energy of a cubic crystal at zero temperature and a given stress state 
Description
A description about this Property Definition.
 The dislocation core energy is a mathematical construct designed to remove the singularity in the stress and strain fields of elasticity theory. The total strain energy is computed relative to the cohesive energy of the ideal crystal, and the core energy is the portion of this energy that is not accounted for by an elastic model. In this property, the dislocation core energy for cubic crystals at zero temperature and a given stress state is reported using three different elastic models: nonsingular, isotropic, and anisotropic. Each of these core energies is computed for a range of dislocation core cutoff radii and is given in units of energy per unit dislocation line length.

description  Fractional coordinates of the basis atoms in the conventional unit cell. If the unit cell vectors are denoted by <a>, <b>, and <c>, and the fractional coordinates of atom 'i' are [afrac_i, bfrac_i, cfrac_i], the value of 'basisatomcoordinates' will be of the form [[afrac_1 bfrac_1 cfrac_1] [afrac_2 bfrac_2 cfrac_2] ... ]. All components of each basis atom should be between zero and one, inclusive of zero.
