4 In the next section we shall discuss a number of applications of the density functional theory. Three of these applications (defects in semiconductors, magnetic materials and the emission of light in semiconductors) relate to research at Philips Research Laboratories, Eind hoven. T h e other two applications (semiconductors and semiconductor surfaces) relate to work done elsewhere. 4 A version of the Hartree-Fock theory related to the density functional theory is the Hartree-Fock-Slater theory.
36 Schuurmans alloys of elements found in the \ hatched part of the Periodic Table. Elements t h a t are well known as magnetic materials are Fe, Co and Ni. T h e best permanent magnets are based on the compounds Nd Fei4B, S m C o and S1TI2C017. 2 5 T h e subject of this article is the ab initio calculation of material properties. After evaluat ing the complexity of this problem we shall discuss the density functional theory . Most ab initio calculations for solids are based on this theory.
