Abstract

We study a three-dimensional Anderson-Hubbard model under the coexistence of short-range interaction and diagonal disorder within the Hartree-Fock approximation. We show that the density of states at the Fermi energy is suppressed in the metallic phases near the metal-insulator transition as a proximity effect of the soft Hubbard gap in the insulating phases. The transition to the insulator is characterized by a vanishing density of states (DOS) in contrast to the formation of a quasiparticle peak at the Fermi energy obtained using the dynamical mean field theory in pure systems. Furthermore, we show that there exist frozen spin moments in the paramagnetic metal.
