Abstract

Bloch walls are treated on the basis of the relativistic spin-density functional theory in the local density approximation. We implement the proposed theory and determine the Bloch wall thickness in bcc Fe. Moreover, we study the features of the electronic structure, such as the variations of the density of states and of the magnetic moments, which arise due to the presence of the Bloch wall.
