We present first-principles calculations of the structural and lattice-dynamical properties for cubic yttrium nitride. The ground state properties, such as the lattice constant and the bulk modulus, are calculated using a plane wave pseudopotential method within density functional theory. A linear-response approach to density functional theory is used to derive the phonon frequencies. In this work, we present plane-wave pseudopotential calculations within density functional theory and calculate the phonon frequencies for high symmetry points. DOI: 10.12693/APhysPolA.123.317
