Abstract

All-electron full-potential linearized augmented plane wave (FLAPW) calculations have been performed for Co2MnX (X=Si, Ge, Sn) Heusler compounds, focusing on structural, electronic and magnetic properties. The comparison between the local spin density approximation (LSDA) and the generalized gradient approximation (GGA) for the exchange-correlation functional shows that GGA is essential to give an accurate description of the equilibrium volumes and of the electronic and magnetic properties of these systems.
