The problem of setting up "itinerant" and "localized" descriptions of 3d, 4f and 5f electron states is discussed. Recent band-theory predictions of conduction-electron polarization, magnetization density and the neutron magnetic form factor for various metals are described. Comparisons of theory with experiment show good agreement, and confirm our ideas on the range of validity of the energy-band description.
