Field-induced magnetization densities of Sc metal determined from augmented plane-wave functions, including local density-of-states effects, were found to show a large spatial expansion of the 3d density and strong bonding effects. These result in an "anomalous" behavior of the neutron magnetic form factor which has been found in the experiments of Koehler and Moon.
