The charge-ordered insulating state of (Formula presented)(Formula presented) below the Verwey transition temperature has been studied by the modified local density approximation with Coulomb interaction correction method. The charge ordering is found to be a stable solution with an energy gap value of 0.34 eV (the experimental value is 0.14 eV) in contrast to a uniform metallic state given by the standard local spin-density approximation. The calculated effective intersite Coulomb interaction is well screened (V=0.18 eV). It was shown that the change in electrostatic potential associated with the transition to a completely disordered state can close an energy gap leading to a metallic state.
