Abstract : The de Haas-van Alphen effect has been measured in the ordered alloy beta prime-AgZn by the modulation method, improving and extending the results of earlier observations. The results are in good agreement with recent theoretical calculations of the Fermi surface, although some of the predicted orbits have not been observed. The hole octahedron in the first band and the triangular hole in the second band have been identified unambiguously, and the shape of the octahedron has been determined by inversion. (Author)
