Abstract Using numerical simulations, we investigate the distribution of Kondo temperatures at the Anderson transition. In agreement with previous work, we find that the distribution has a long tail at small Kondo temperatures. Recently, an approximation for the tail of the distribution was derived analytically. This approximation takes into account the multifractal distribution of the wavefunction amplitudes (in the parabolic approximation), and power law correlations between wave function…

Multifractal finite-size scaling and universality at the Anderson transition

We describe a new multifractal finite-size scaling (MFSS) procedure and its application to the Anderson localization-delocalization transition. MFSS permits the simultaneous estimation of the

Multifractal analysis with the probability density function at the three-dimensional anderson transition.

A PDF-based multifractal analysis is shown to be a valid alternative to the standard approach based on the scaling of inverse participation ratios and the non-Gaussian nature and the existence of a symmetry relation in the PDF are shown.

Multifractal analysis of the metal-insulator transition in the 3D Anderson model II: Symmetry relation under ensemble averaging

We study the multifractal analysis (MFA) of electronic wavefunctions at the localisation-delocalisation transition in the 3D Anderson model for very large system sizes up to $240^3$. The singularity

Universal distribution of Kondo temperatures in dirty metals.

The most important consequence of this result is that the T dependence of thermodynamic properties is smooth across the metal-insulator transition in three dimensional systems.

Dilute magnetic impurities in a disordered Fermi liquid are considered close to the Anderson metal-insulator transition (AMIT). Critical Power law correlations between electron wave functions at

Critical exponent for the Anderson transition in the three-dimensional orthogonal universality class

We report a careful finite size scaling study of the metal–insulator transition in Anderson's model of localization. We focus on the estimation of the critical exponent ν that describes the

Enhancement of the critical temperature of superconductors by Anderson localization.

It is shown that in all these regimes Anderson localization leads to strong enhancement of T{c} related to the multifractality of wave functions, and screening of the long-range Coulomb interaction opens a promising direction for searching novel materials for high-T{c}.

Critical metal phase at the Anderson metal-insulator transition with Kondo impurities.

It is shown that multifractal correlations open local pseudogaps at the Fermi energy at some random positions in space that extend to a critical region in the disorder strength parameter and to a band of critical states when dilute magnetic impurities are at these locations.
