The structure and formation energy of vacancies and interstitials at symmetrical tilt grain boundaries in molybdenum have been investigated by means of classical molecular dynamics. The dependence of the formation energy of these boundaries on the grain misorientation angle has been calculated. The structures of defects, energies of their formation, and diffusion mechanisms have been determined for the most stable grain boundaries.
