We present results of ab initio pseudopotential calculations for the (2x4) reconstruction of the Sb-terminated GaAs(001) surface. Using the structural model recently proposed by Moriarty et al [1] we provide a detailed analysis of the atomic geometry and the nature of chemical bonding at the surface. The geometrical results are compared with the x-ray standing wave analysis of Sugiyama et al [2].
