Title: The role of f electrons in rare-earth and uranium intermetallics

Abstract

Electronic structures of Nd{sup 3+} and U{sup 3+} icon NdNi{sub 5} and UPd{sub 2}Al{sub 3} intermetallic compounds have been discussed. The strong correlation between the charge distribution at vicinity of the f-shell electrons and the magnetic state of the f electron subsystem of these Kramers icons has been underlined. The formation of the local magnetic moment, of the ordered magnetic state, of the singlet ground state and of the energy gap in the ordered state is evaluated in conjugation with the temperature dependence of the energy level scheme. It is argued that as a functions of the charge distribution and the spin-dependent interactions many exotic properties are expected resembling those found in heavy-fermion compounds.
