Antiferromagnetic MnPt exhibits a spin reorientation transition (SRT) as a function of temperature, and offstoichiometric Mn-Pt alloys also display SRTs as a function of concentration. Here we describe the origin of these SRTs using first-principles calculations based on the coherent potential approximation, treating chemical and thermally-induced spin disorder on equal footing. We find that the experimentally observed SRTs are related to specific features in the band structure, and we perform a detailed analysis of the effects of temperature and concentration on the magnetocrystalline anisotropy.
