The authors present some results of a detailed study of the electronic band structure and some physical properties of orthorhombic uranium using a relativistic version of the LAPW method. Total and projected (by orbital angular momentum) densities of states are used to discuss the photo-emission data of Veal and Lam. The Fermi surfaces of the dominant 6th and 7th bands are found to have high symmetry (and some nesting features) of interest to dHvA measurements being pursued by Arko and Schirber. The theoretical magnetic field induced neutron form factor is found to be in good agreement with the measurements of Maglic et al.
