We report melting points and other thermal properties of several semiconducting and metallic elements as they are modelled by different empirical interatomic potential models, including Stillinger-Weber (SW), embedded-atommethod (EAM), Finnis-Sinclair (FS) and modified-embedded-atom-method (MEAM). The state-of-the-art free energy methods are used to determine the melting points of these models within a very small error bar, so that they can be cross-compared with each other.
