Hidden in the abyss untrod;

Igarashi et al. 22 developed two different EAM (Finnis-Sinclair) potentials for Ru.

This is a simplified presentation of an approach which has many names (e.g., effective-medium theory, embeddedatom method, Finnis-Sinclair potentials, glue model) and which we all call bond-cutting models.
Theory of Adsorption on Metal Substrates
For a deeper discussion of this problem we refer to Scheffler and Bradshaw (1983), Finnis et al. (1995), and references therein.

The enormous success of Finnis-Sinclair (and embedded atom-type) potentials arises from their extreme computational efficiency: essentially they are no more computationally expensive than a conventional pair potential.
