It is pointed out theoretically that a single electron band model is able to exhibit the interchange of two phases: itenerant band ferromagnetism and superconductivity. Our theory is based on the molecular field approximation applied for a simplified electron-electron interaction. Possible phase changes are discussed in connection with two phase transitions of ferromagnetism and superconductivity in the intermetallic compound Y4Co3.
