Not really a comment, just a few questions one might consider (I probably would, but I am half an expert at best):

I understand that this is an alloy? If yes, what kind of supercell do you use to model the system? Are these t2g and eg symmetries actually present in all possible configurations within the alloy (probably not)? Is it possible that the symmetry you artificially impose is at the bottom of this? Why do you believe that U should act in the same way on different symmetries? Could it be that localizing t2g pays off much better than eg? Did you try other configurations / supercells / symmetries?

Dear Prof. Lyudmila Dobysheva

Thanks for your reply. There was a old paper on this alloy, which show
similar kind of results, ie. deep pseudo gap with finite states at Ef.
please see the link below [1]

In this article they discussed the raise in resitivity using the Mott
theory of electron localization when electrons are captured by these
states around Ef, so called localised states.

However, I want to apply U for the Co-d states in order to explain the
raise in resistivity at low temperatures by creating artificial gap.
But although, I applied U= 5 eV on Co-d states, d-t2g states are only
moved well below the Fermi level while d-eg are not effected. This
leads to presence of finite states from d-eg at Ef.

please share any idea you have about this..

Can someone has any another comment on this..?
