Abstract

A first-principles theory of resonant magnetic scattering of x rays is presented. The scattering amplitudes are

vertex. In order to calculate the cross section reliably an accurate description of the electronic states in the

local spin density approximation combined with the self-interaction corrections. The magnetic x-ray resonant

orbital with atomic sphere approximation band structure calculation method. The theory is illustrated with an

on the spin and orbital magnetic moments originally predicted qualitatively [Blume, J. Appl. Phys. 57,

3615 (1985)] and yields results that can be compared directly with experiment.
