Abstract. Using the ab initio study, we theoretically investigated the electronic, structural and magnetic properties of the FeRh1–xPtx (x = 0.875‒1). For the Pt concentrations х = 0.875, the spin configuration AFM-III is stable. For FePt the ferromagnetic phase is more stable. It is shown that the equilibrium lattice parameter and the type of magnetic ordering change with increasing Pt concentration. The simulated value of the Curie temperature for compositions is close to experimental data.
