Results of calculations for the (110) polar surfaces of three ABO3 perovskites — STO, BTO and LMO — are discussed. These are based on ab initio Hartree-Fock method and classical Shell Model. Both methods agree well on both surface energies and on near-surface atomic displacements. A novel model of the "zig-zag" surface termination is suggested and analyzed. Considerable increase of the Ti[Single Bond]O chemical bond covalency nearby the surface is predicted for STO.
