We have performed first-principles band structure calculations for CeRhAs and related compounds. In order to discuss the thermoelectric properties, we calculate temperature dependence of Seebeck coefficients from band structure within semi-classical Boltzmann transport theory. We discuss in detail density of states near the Fermi energy and thermoelectric properties.
