Annotation Solid body lattice heat capacity calculation technique is proposed. Lattice energy is determined using the one-atom energy, which is calculated as a sum of potential energies of atom interactions with its neighbors (more than 30 coordination spheres are taken into account). Considering heat expansion, there is a dependence of the lattice distance (and so the potential energy) on the temperature. Based on this the heat capacity was determined, and its value corresponds better to the experimental data than other all-known dependences.
