Dear Prof. Stefaan, 

I would like to very much thank you for your detailed expainations. But I'am 
still a little confused regarding why the Murnaghan EOS equation can be 
widely used as the fitting functions for evaluating the equilibrium lattice 
constant in most First-princiles code. Probably this equation is more 
appropriate formula mathematically and meaningful in a physical sense 
compared with other equations. Could you please tell me in a little more 
details about this? Also is there any references? Thank you very much.
With best regards,
