This paper gives a brief account of recent calculations of equilibrium configurations, formation energies, and migration energies of intrinsic lattice defects (vacancies, self-interstitials) and complexes of dopant impurities (phosphorus, aluminum) with these defects. The results have been used to provide a comprehensive interpretation of low- and high-temperature diffusion data.
