The first principles calculations by using the plane-wave pseudopotential method in the scheme of density functional theory were performed for polymorphs of ZnO: wurzite-, zinc-blende-, rocksalt-structures, and yet undiscovered CsCl-structure. The elastic behaviour and the stability of the structures are investigated and compared to experimental data, where available.
