The layered resolved magnetic spin moments of the magnetic 3d bilayer interfaces Fe/V bcc, Fe/Co bcc, Fe/Cu bcc, Co/V bcc, Co/Ni fcc, Co/Cu fcc, Ni/V fcc, Ni/Cr fcc, Ni/Cu fcc and the magnetic surfaces Fe bcc, Co bcc, Co fcc, and Ni fcc are calculated for the ͑001͒, ͑011͒, and ͑111͒ orientations by means of a firstprinciples Green's function method. It is shown how the magnetic profiles around the bilayer interfaces and surfaces directly can be used to predict the magnetization of more complex
