Abstract

A method of electronic structure calculations for strongly correlated disordered materials is developed employing the basic idea of the coherent potential approximation. The evolution of the electronic structure and spin magnetic moment value with the concentration x in strongly correlated Ni 1-xZnxO solid solutions is investigated in the framework of this method. The values of the energy gap and magnetic moment obtained are in agreement with the available experimental data.
