First-principles calculation is performed for the spin-polarized band structures of MPt3 (MV, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co) by using a scalar-relativistic LAPW method. Calculated values of the spin moments of M atoms are in good agreement with the observations. The spin moment of Pt atom is antiparallel to that of M atoms for MV and Cr, and parallel for MMn, Fe and Co.
