The magnetism of vanadium (001) layers has been studied by calculating the local magnetic moment of each atomic site in addition to other parameters related to the local electronic structure. These calculations were carried out using the tight binding recursion method and the Hubbard model Hamiltonian of magnetism. The dependence of the magnetism of vanadium layers on the interatomic distance is the central part of the study. The ferromagnetic (F) and antiferromagnetic (AF) solutions of the coupling between magnetic vanadium layers are studied in terms of the interatomic distance. Also the stability of each solution is tested using the calculated values of the total energy. Using a good range of the interatomic distances, the accepted (AF or F) solution is determined for the coupling between vanadium (001) layers.
