Abstract. In the present work, the structural and magnetic properties of Fe0.5Mn0.5Rh and Fe0.375Mn0.625Rh alloys are investigated by using the density functional theory calculations within a supercell approach as implemented in the VASP code. It is shown, that the equilibrium lattice parameter change with increasing Mn concentration. The antiferromagnetic spin configuration in cubic phase is stable for Fe0.5Mn0.5Rh and the ferromagnetic spin configuration in cubic phase is stable for Fe0.375Mn0.625Rh alloys.
