A self-consistent calculation of the electron band structure of the Ce 2Fe17 intermetallic compound was performed using the local-density approximation. Total and partial densities of states of cerium and iron ions have been calculated. These data were used to interpret the dispersion of the optical conductivity of the compound measured in an energy range of 0.083-10.46 eV.
