With our calculations [I], we uncovered the electronic mechanism responsible for inducing atomic short-range order (SRO) in the disordered solid solution of NiPt as it is cooled. Usually, but not always, SRO, whether derived theoretically or measured experimentally, indicates the nature of the long-rangeordered (LRO) state that will stabilize at low temperature. Our calculation of the atomic SRO, while agreeing with experiments [2], neglected the relativistic effects in the electronic structure. Lu, Wei, and Zunger (LWZ) [3,4], on the other hand, have calculated the L lo-ordered alloy formation energy and find that only when relativistic effects are included is ...
