We present calculations on the physical properties of Ti4AlN3 obtained from first principles, as well as some general observations concerning this group of materials. We further report mechanical data obtained through numerical simulations for some representative phases, and elaborate on the issue of high pressure stability. By examining the density of states of Ti4AlN3, we conclude that it is a semimetal, and we predict an opening up of the band gap around the Fermi level with increasing pressure.
