Different classes of compounds based on transition metals belong to strongly correlated compounds due to strong interactions of d and f electrons with each other and with itinerant electronic states. This results in a number of interesting phenomena, including metal–insulator and various magnetic spin transitions, “heavy fermion” compounds, interplay between magnetic order and superconductivity, formation of local magnetic moments, anomalies of transport properties, etc. Recent results in this field based on applications of ab initio approaches and dynamical mean-field theory are reviewed in this paper.
