N2 - The achievements of electron theory in investigation of the electronic and atomic properties of metal surfaces are reviewed for simple metals. The local density functional approach is used to describe the electron-electron interaction. The results of first-principles calculations of true surface and resonance surface states, charge density distributions, work function, surface layer geometry and surface phonon frequencies are given. The influence of adsorbed layers on the surface electronic characteristics is investigated. The prospects of this method for studying metal surfaces in electric fields as well as for studying the metal-electrolyte interface are outlined.
