Self-consistent LSDF potentials resulting from LMTO calculations are used to start embedded-cluster calculations of electronic structure of ordered and moderately disordered solids in a Lloyd multiple-scattering formalism, This is done as a shortcut to remedy the difficulties of attaining full self-consistency in this approach. We report results obtained with this technique on the interplay between the local chemical environment and the magnetic moment of a nickel atom in the nickel-platinum system near the 3:1 composition ratio.
