The interrelation between the specific crystallographic positions and their influence on the magnetism of neighboring atoms is examined from first principles electronic structure calculations using the Gd5Ge4 compound as a model system. The predicted preferences of the specific occupations by nonmagnetic yttrium atoms and the resulting magnetism of substituted Gd5Ge4 have been confirmed, respectively, by single crystal x-ray diffraction and magnetization experiments.
