When the complexity of a metallic compound reaches a certain level, a specific location in the structure may be critically responsible for a given fundamental property of a material while other locations may not play as much of a role in determining such a property. The first-principles theory has pinpointed a critical location in the framework of a complex intermetallic compound-Gd5Ge4-that resulted in a controlled alteration of the magnetism of this compound using precise chemical tools.
