Abstract
We describe the applications of first-principles calculations to the analysis of transport and magnetic properties of rare-earth materials. The first application is a detailed calculation of the spin-disorder resistivity of heavy rare-earth metals in the Gd-Tm series. The crystallographic anisotropy of the spin-disorder resistivity agrees well with experiment, but its magnitude is significantly underestimated. Possible origins of this discrepancy are discussed. In the second part we analyze the exchange interaction in Gd-doped EuO using a magnetostructural cluster expansion based on the ab initio total energies. The calculated Curie temperature has a broad maximum extending over 10-20% Gd concentration and reaching approximately 150 K.
