      Ab initio self-consistent semi-relativistic spin-polarized TB-LMTO energy band calculations have been carried out on Ni/Cu(100) multilayers, to study the in-plane as well as perpendicular to plane giant magnetoresistance (GMR) effects. The magnetic interaction energies, evaluated as a function of layer thickness, indicate that the antiferromagnetic ordering is a possible ground state for manifestation of GMR. Using the density of states at Fermi level and the Fermi velocity, GMR has been estimated as a function of the Cu spacer thickness.
