The linearized augmented plane-wave (LAPW) method for thin films has been applied to the problem of alkali overlayers on a free-electron-line substrate - specifically, the ordered halfmonolayer coverage of Na on the Al(001) surface. Self-consistent results are reported for adsorbate-induced surface states, work functions, density of states, and charge densities. Comparisons have been made with self-consistent results for clean Al(001), and cluster and jellium model calculations for related systems.
