The magnetic behaviour of thin films of (111) FCC structures and (0001) corundum structured materials were studied by the mean field analysis and some Monte Carlo simulation. These models were conditioned on a mapping from first principles calculations to the Ising model. The effect of the suggested octopolar reconstruction for the polar (111) surfaces of FCC was also examined.
