Publisher Summary Stimulated by technological prospects of high-density magneto-optical (MO) recording and by fundamental research on magnetism, a wealth of experimental data on MO Kerr spectra had been collected until the beginning of the nineties. The theoretical explanation of magneto-optical Kerr effect (MOKE) spectra because of first-principles band-structure calculations was at that time in its infancy, and consequently all the insight that theory could give in the microscopic mechanism leading to large Kerr rotations was mainly speculative, because nothing could be proven by first-principles calculations. This situation has profoundly changed, due to the rapid development of first-principles computational research on MO Kerr spectra during the nineties.
