The PCAR spectra of Pb/Co, Pb/Ni, and Pb/Cu point contacts and the spin polarization of the interface conductances from first principles were calculated. A number of dubious approximations made when applying the BTK model to transition metals were removed. The resultant data were analyzed in detail.
