In this paper, we present a comparison of the performance of a series of embedded atom method potentials for the evaluation of bulk and small aluminium cluster geometries and relative energies, against benchmark density functional theory calculations. In general, the non-pairwise potential-B (NP-B), which was parametrized against Al cluster data, performs the best.
