The band structure of Bi2Ru2O7 and Pb2Ru2O6.5 has been computed self-consistently from first principles for the first time by the pseudofunction method. We discover that the 6s bands of Bi and Pb are very deep and unlikely to contribute to the metallic behavior as previously believed. The unoccupied 6p bands, however, are only several eV above the Fermi energy and are mixed with the Ru 4d band at the Fermi surface via the framework O atoms, leading to band conduction and delocalized magnetic moments. The predicted location of the 6s bands and the location and width of the O 2p band are confirmed by synchrotron radiation and ultraviolet electron spectroscopy of single crystals.

    A new approach to discretization of a continuous band coupled to a discrete state is provided by the Lanczos tridiagonalization procedure, which uses linked moments of the continuum with respect to the discrete state. Numerical convergence of this scheme is shown for two models of the line-shape...
