The electronic densities of states (DOS) are calculated for the crystalline and amorphous phases of CuZr2. The calculated DOS for the amorphous phase is in good agreement with the photoemission data for amorphous CuZr2. The calculated DOS at the Fermi level for the amorphous phase is 1.8 times that for the crystalline phase. Recent experimental studies of the superconducting transition temperature in the amorphous phase and the electronic specific heat in both phases support this result.
