We present a self-consistent theory of Anderson localization that yields a simple algorithm to obtain the typical local density of states as an order parameter, thereby reproducing the essential features of a phase diagram of localization-delocalization quantum phase transition in the standard lattice models of the disordered electron problem. Due to the local character of our theory, it can easily be combined with dynamical mean-field approaches to strongly correlated electrons, thus opening an attractive avenue for a genuine non-perturbative treatment of the interplay of strong interactions and strong disorder.
