A novel approach to electronic correlations and magnetism of crystals based on the realistic electronic structure calculations is reviewed. In its simplest form it is a combination of the "local density approximation'' (LDA) and the dynamical mean field theory (DMFT) approaches. Using numerically exact QMC solution of effective DMFT multi-orbital quantum-impurity problem, a successful description of the electronic structure and finite temperature magnetism of transition metals has been obtained. A simplified perturbation LDA+DMFT scheme which combined the T-matrix and fluctuation-exchange approximation (SPTF) is discussed. Correlation effects in transition metals (Fe,Ni,Cr,Mn) and half-metallic Heussler alloys are considered, in particular, orbital Kondo-resonance on Cr(001) surface and nonquasiparticle states in the minority-spin gap in NiMnSb.
