### Summary of "Inducing half metallicity with alloying in Heusler Compound CoFeMnSb."

First principles studies were performed in order to find out the possibility of inducing half-metallicity in Heusler Compound CoFeMnSb, by means of alloying it with 3d-transition metal elements. Proper alloying element is selected through the calculations of formation energies. These calculations were tested with different concentrations of alloying elements at different atomic sites. Among the selected transition metal elements Sc and Ti are proposed to be excellent alloying elements particularly at Mn site. By using these alloying elements complete half metallic behaviour is obtained in CoFeMn&lt;sub&gt;0.25&lt;/sub&gt; Sc&lt;sub&gt;0.75&lt;/sub&gt; Sb, CoFeMn&lt;sub&gt;0.75&lt;/sub&gt;Ti&lt;sub&gt;0.25&lt;/sub&gt;Sb, CoFeMn&lt;sub&gt;0.625&lt;/sub&gt;Ti&lt;sub&gt;0.375&lt;/sub&gt;Sb, CoFeMn&lt;sub&gt;0.50&lt;/sub&gt;Ti&lt;sub&gt;0.50&lt;/sub&gt;Sb, CoFeMn&lt;sub&gt;0.25&lt;/sub&gt;Ti&lt;sub&gt;0.75&lt;/sub&gt;Sb and CoFeTiSb alloys. Shifting of Co-Fe d-states towards lower energy region leads to zero density of states at Fermi level for the spin minority channel. Alloying effects on the electronic structure and magnetization are discussed in details. Thermodynamical stability of these new alloys are major part of this study. The Curie temperatures of CoFeMn&lt;sub&gt;0.25&lt;/sub&gt;Sc&lt;sub&gt;0.75&lt;/sub&gt;Sb and CoFeMn&lt;sub&gt;0.75&lt;/sub&gt; Ti&lt;sub&gt;0.25&lt;/sub&gt;Sb were found to be 324.5 K and 682 K; respectively, showing good candidature for spintronics applications. For understanding the bonding nature of constituent atom of CoFeMnSb, crystal orbital Hamiltonian populations have been analysed.
