The electronic structure of vacancies in Fe, Ni, and Cu transition metals and in Al is calculated by linear augmented plane waves (LAPW) in muffin‐tin Green function approach. The electronic structure of vacancies shows a strong hybridization with metallic d‐states, and a considerable effect is observed on the s‐ and p‐electrons in the density of states. The charge transfer differs from the similar case of the simple metals.
