Abstract: The magnetism of 4f (lanthanide) metallic systems has been studied extensively for several decades. The standard localized moment model of rare earth magnetism, as expounded by Jensen and Mackintosh,1 remains the foundation for explaining the magnetic and electrical properties of almostall such materials, with the exception of cerium and its compounds where band and hybridization effects play a crucialrole. In 5f (actinide) metallic systems, the f-electron wave functions are distinctly more extended than in the corresponding 4f systems, leading to a more itinerantlike nature as manifested by their magnetic and electrical behaviors. Actinide systems display a unique complexity within the Periodic Table, exhibiting a rich variety of phenomena such asheavy-fermion and non-Fermi liquid behaviors and unconventional superconductivity.
