A simple model of alloy nonrandomness is introduced within a framework where the effective concentration of spin singlets as a function of the nominal concentration of magnetic ions in a nonrandom alloy can be obtained by transformations of the corresponding function in random alloys. The theory shows that a given system that is appreciably nonrandom can have a magnetic response almost identical with that of a random distribution. Possible ways of identifying alloy nonrandomness in diluted magnetic semiconductor structures are described.
