A random mixture of two compounds with different type of magnetic ordering which can lead to a new phase with different magnetic characteristics is studied. Such an interesting random magnetic system can be formed by a ferromagnet (e.g. Gd2Au) and antiferromagnetic system like e.g. Gd2Al with localized magnetic moments where, in principle, the dominant exchange interactions are those of the nearest neighbours. A systematic study on the solid solutions of the type Gd-2(Al1-xAux) is reported here. (I) The roles and effects of conduction electron concentration "c.e.c." on the magnetic structure, where the magnetic behaviour is shape dependent (0.2 < x < 0). (II) The cause of magnetic instability of Gd2Al, which should be due to the "c.e". (III) The critical stabilized point by decreasing "c.e.c.". It is shown that the magnetic phase of the pseudobinary intermetallic compound Gd-2(AuxAl1-x) becomes unstable by increasing the conduction electron concentration through the variation in unit cell dimensions. It becomes stable at a critical value of c.e.c., where Sigma-epsilon(ij) J(ij) = 0, resulting in a paramagnetic behaviour (theta(p) approximate to 0 to 5) at x = 0.3. It is shown that the instabilities of the crystal and magnetic structure are functions of c.e.c. and depend on the Fermi sphere K-F which is the main cause of the shape dependence of the magnetic structure of the sample.
