An adjusted local pseudopotential method is used to obtain the electronic band structure of boron phosphide under pressure. The electronic charge density distributions are computed at several points of the valence and conduction band edges. These charge densities are used to study the modification of the bonding and electronic properties of the compound with respect to different volumes ranging from 0.75 V0 to V0.
