The electronic structure of gadolinium metal and CeSb has been calculated using a density functional method which explicitly includes the Coulomb parameter U for the 4f-electrons. The calculated density of states, total energies, Fermi surface, and magneto-optical properties are in better agreement with experiment than those obtained with the standard local density technique.
