The effective interatomic potentials of the transition metals are reported which are calculated within the framework of the pseudopotential approximation based on a model potential of the Heine Abarenkov type. The results obtained are combined with the cluster variation method in order to make predictions on the phase diagram of the ternary system CuNiZn. The predictions on the phase diagram are in reasonable agreement with experiments taking into account more-body forces and are topologically correct.
