Self-interaction corrected, local spin density description of the gamma to alpha transition in Ce.

Szotek Z., Temmerman W.M., Winter H.

We show that, in contrast to local spin density, the self-interaction corrected local spin density provides a correct description of the gamma phase of Ce metal. It correctly accounts for the volume and magnetic moment collapse at the gamma to alpha transition, in good agreement with experiment.
