We analyze the influence of hopping interaction on magnetic ordering. Scattering scheme of the Hubbard III approximation with included inter-site kinetic electron-electron correlation is used. The hopping interaction and inter-site correlation lead to two spin dependent effects: the band width correction and the band-shift correction. The band-shift correction factor causes an exchange splitting between the spin-up and spin-down spectrum, and its role is similar to the exchange interaction in the classic Stoner model. The spin dependent band width correction enhanced strongly by the inter-site kinetic correlation lowers the kinetic energy of electrons by decreasing the majority spin band width for some electron occupations with respect to the minority spin band width. The results show that in the case of the symmetrical density of states there is only ferromagnetic enhancement. For the strongly asymmetrical density of states there is a ferromagnetic transition.
