We study the thermodynamic properties of the 3D Hubbard model for temperatures down to the Neel temperature by using cluster dynamical mean-field theory. In particular, we calculate the energy, entropy, density, double occupancy, and nearest-neighbor spin correlations as a function of chemical potential, temperature, and repulsion strength. To make contact with cold-gas experiments, we also compute properties of the system subject to an external trap in the local density approximation. We find that an entropy per particle S/N approximate to 0.65(6) at U/t = 8 is sufficient to achieve a Neel state in the center of the trap, substantially higher than the entropy required in a homogeneous system. Precursors to antiferromagnetism can clearly be observed in nearest-neighbor spin correlators.
