The characteristic lengths of the electron wave function in a random three-dimensional system tend to diverge at a critical point at zero temperature and a density nc. The results differ from predictions of Mott and of scaling theories of localization. The lengths associated with electron diffusion appear to be dominated by Coulomb interactions and electron-electron inelastic scattering.
