Density functional (DF) theory is a ground-state theory: a variational principle for the ground-state energy in terms of electron density or electron spin density. This article deals with the DF theory of the ground-state magnetic properties of rare earths and actinides. The work is discussed under the following headings: (i) transition metals, rare earths and actinides; (ii) the elemental metals; (iii) magnetism of rare earth compounds; (iv) magnetism in actinide compounds.
