We present the results of the structural, thermodynamical, elastic, and electronic properties of the hypothetical aluminum bismuth (AlBi) compound (III-V) in zinc-blende phase by performing ab initio total energy calculations within the local density approximation in Siesta package. Particularly, we have focused on the pressure dependences of the second-order elastic constants (Cij), Debye temperature, and Melting temperature for this compound. Calculations on the other basic properties, such as lattice constant, bulk modulus, and some band structural parameters are also repeated and compared with those of other recent theoretical works, and generally, the good agreements are obtained.
