1ST PRINCIPLES THEORY OF MAGNETOCRYSTALLINE ANISOTROPY

By 

Abstract

In this paper we discuss a first principles theory of magnetocrystalline anisotropy. The theory is based upon relativistic spin-polarised multiple scattering theory. It is illustrated with a calculation of the anisotropy energy for iron and nickel. These results are compared with other recent calculations and with experiment. The discrepancies between theory and experiment and their implications are discussed
