The density of electron states of binary alloys of transitional elements with short‐range order is found using the coherent potential approximation. On the base of these calculated values the contribution of the band structure energy to the configurational part of the total energy is determined and the equilibrium value of the short‐range order parameter on the first coordination sphere is evaluated. The order parameters obtained for most the considered systems agree in sign with the experimental data.
