The results of first-principles calculations of the electronic structure and magnetic properties of 2p- and 3p-impurities in ferromagnetic amorphous iron, obtained by the self-consistent tight-binding LMTO-recursion method are presented. The peculiarities of the electronic structure of impurities caused by the structural disorder are considered. The role of impurities in stabilizing the ferromagnetic state of amorphous Fe is discussed on the basis of calculations of the changes of effective exchange interaction parameters for nearest-neighbor host atoms to the impurities.
