    We calculate the free energy for a crystalline ZrO2 with a soft mode by the first-principles method, using the double-well energy-displacement relation. The soft-mode branch is considered as an ensemble of independent anharmonic oscillators of the parabola-plus-Gaussian or of the 2-4 polynomial...
