The self-consistent electron densities and the corresponding positron states have been calculated for cubic zirconium dioxide in the local-density approximation of the density-functional formalism. The band structure calculations have been performed by the self-consistent linear muffin-tin orbital method. The influence of oxygen vacancies and metallic substitutional impurities (Y, Mg) on positron characteristics in zirconium dioxide has been investigated.
