© 2019 Elsevier B.V.We performed first principles calculations to determine the typical cubic elastic constants (C11, C12 and C44), bulk modulus (B), shear modulus (G) and Young's modulus (E) of TlBr and TlCl compounds. We employed two different GGA functionals, the Perdew-Wang 1991 (PW91) and the Perdew-Burke-Ernzerhof (PBE) for the exchange and correlation energy to present calculations. Our results for the elastic constants, bulk modulus, shear modulus and Young's modulus of TlBr and TlCl compounds were compared both with former experiments and theoretical data. Present results are found to be satisfactory and better than some earlier literature data.
