Calculated magnetic properties of uranium sulphide under pressure
First principles electronic structure calculations for the itinerant 5f ferromagnet US are presented. At ambient conditions the computed moments agree well with neutron data. As a function of pressure, this magnetization is found to be relatively stable down to volume compressions well over 10%. On further increase in pressure the moment decreases drastically.
