The structural, elastic, magnetic, and electronic properties of the tetragonal zircon-type CeVO 4 are investigated with first-principles method. We use the local density approximation (LDA), generalized gradient approximation (GGA), LDA+U, and GGA+U methods to find the most stable structure of the zircon-type CeVO 4 . By employing pure density functional theory (DFT), we obtain a ferromagnetic...
