Title: Electronic structure and x-ray magnetic circular dichroism in YbAgCu4 and YbInCu4

X-ray absorption and magnetic circular dichroism spectra at the L-3 edge of Yb have been studied theoretically in the mixed-valent compounds YbAgCu4 and YbInCu4 using the fully relativistic Dirac linear muffin-tin orbital band structure method. The effect of the spin-orbit (SO) interaction and Coulomb repulsion U on the electronic structure of YbAgCu4 and YbInCu4 is examined in the frame of the local spin-density approximation (LSDA)+SO+U method. The core-hole effect in the final states as well as the effect of the electric quadrupole E-2 and magnetic dipole M-1 transitions have been investigated. The calculated results are compared with available experimental data.
