Many cerium alloys and compounds are characterized by heavy-fermion behaviour due to the Kondo effect. In the case of a lattice, there is a strong competition between the Kondo effect and magnetic ordering, which has been described by the Doniach diagram. We describe here the Kondo-lattice model within a mean-field treatment of the Hamiltonian, including both the s-f exchange intra-site interaction and the nearest neighbour inter-site f-f interaction in the three following cases: first, we treat the non-magnetic case and discuss the effects of conduction band filling on the occurrence of the Kondo effect; second, we describe the antiferromagnetic to Kondo transition; and third, the spin-glass to Kondo transition, both as a function of the intra-site interaction for a finite inter-site interaction. Comparison with experimental data in cerium systems is presented.
