We use a combination of the coherent potential approximation and dynamical mean field theory to study magnetic properties of the ${\mathrm{Fe}}_{1\ensuremath{-}x}{\mathrm{Ni}}_{x}$ alloy from first principles. Calculated uniform magnetic susceptibilities have a Curie-Weiss-like behavior, and extracted effective temperatures are in agreement with the experimental results. The individual squared magnetic moments obtained as a function of nickel concentration follow the same trends as experimental… Expand

Correlation effects in fcc-Fe(x)Ni(1-x) alloys investigated by means of the KKR-CPA.
It turned out that the inclusion of correlation effects hardly changed the spin magnetic moments and the related hyperfine fields, and the spin-orbit induced orbital magnetic moments, on the other hand, show a pronounced and element-specific enhancement. Expand

The results indicate that the magnetic properties of bcc Fe are mainly affected by the Hund's rule coupling J rather than by the Hubbard U, and the effective local magnetic moment moves further away from the experimental value. Expand
Theory of bulk and surface quasiparticle spectra for Fe, Co, and Ni
