### Abstract

We have studied transition-metal 3d-oxygen 2p lattice models, where full degeneracy of transition-metal 3d and oxygen 2p orbitals and on-site Coulomb and exchange interactions between 3d electrons are taken into account, by means of a spin- and orbital-unrestricted Hartree-Fock (HF) approximation. The electronic-structure parameters deduced from the cluster-model analyses of the photoemission spectra are used as input. We have applied this method to perovskite-type 3d transition-metal oxides, which exhibit various electrical and magnetic properties. It is shown that the HF results can explain the ground-state properties of insulating oxides. The relationship between spin- and orbital-ordered solutions and the Jahn-Teller-type and GdFeO_{3}-type distortions in RTiO_{3}, AVO_{3}, RMnO_{3}, and RNiO_{3} (R is a rare earth atom or Y) is extensively studied. Single-particle excitation spectra calculated using Koopmans' theorem give us an approximate but relevant picture on the electronic structure of the perovskite-type 3d transition-metal oxides. As a drawback, the HF calculations tend to overestimate the magnitude of the band gap compared with the experimental results and to predict some paramagnetic metals as antiferromagnetic insulators.
