Abstract

Induced magnetization densities determined from an ab initio augmented-plane-wave wave-function study of Pd metal including local density-of-states effects on the Fermi surface were found to yield a neutron magnetic form factor in excellent agreement with the recent experiments of Cable et al. A remarkable feature of these solid-state spin densities is their spatial localization which is greater than even the very contracted Hartee-Fock density of the free Pd2+ ion.
