The antiferromagnetic ordering in manganese clusters was analyzed. The first principles density functional theory investigations of small manganese clusters reveal a competition between ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic ordering of atomic magnetic moments. However, for smaller sizes, the competition results in a near degeneracy between the two types of orderings.
