We have calculated Heisenberg exchange parameters for bcc-Fe, fcc-Co, and fcc-Ni using the scalar-relativistic spin-polarized Green function technique within the tight-binding linear muffin-tin orbital method and by employing the magnetic force theorem to calculate total energy changes associated with a local rotation of magnetization directions. We have(More)
The effective exchange interactions of magnetic overlayers Fe/Cu(001) and Co/Cu(001) covered by a Cu-cap layer of varying thickness were calculated in real space from first principles. The effective two-dimensional Heisenberg Hamiltonian was constructed and used to estimate magnon dispersion laws, spin-wave stiffness constants, and overlayer Curie(More)
