Theoretical determinations are reported of the magnetic properties of free surfaces left bracket e. g. , Ni(110) right bracket and overlayers left bracket e. g. , Ni on Cu(001) right bracket based on self-consistent spin polarized energy band determinations of the energy dispersion and spatial character of surface state. Particular attention is paid to surface state effects on surface spin polarization, magnetic moments, and exchange splittings. Detailed results of charged and spin densities and layer projected density of states are presented. Comparisons are made to relevant photo-emission and other experiments, the nonexistence of magnetically ″dead″ layers is described, and comparisons with earlier results on coherent modulated Cu/Ni structures are given.
