It also checks whether the cell is primitive see chkprim. In order for the band structure graph to be valid, it is important mwnual all k- points plotted had their energy eigenvalues obtained from the same system and calculated using the same convergence criteria.

A WARNING message indicates that something happened that is not as expected, but this something is not so important as to make the code stop. Going beyond that number will make the code stop very rapidly. This information is redundant with that supplied by array xred or xcart. Special k-points usually corre- sponds to the vertices of the Brillouin zone.

The H2 molecule, without convergence studies. For a given acell and rprim, ecut is the parameter which controls the number of planewaves. So, one might think that the CPU time will raise accordingly. The number of plane waves used for the wavefunctions in the computation of zbinit self—energy is mentioned in the fragments of output: In the present case, they should not be interpreted as a minus sign for the floating numbers that follow them.

Most of its capabilities have been transferred recently inside abinit, however. It is preferable to define atomic positions in cartesian coordinates. This is because the wavefunctions determined by the present run will be used later as starting point of the response—function calculation.

It is convenient to take the vacuum region as having a multiple of the width of the aluminum abinot, but this is not mandatory. They could alternatively be set by hand, or using the symmetry builder to be described later. Note that this diagonalization is performed in a routine outkss.

Abinlt the keyword prtopt. All of its capabilities are present inside abinit, however, and are even more sophisticated. Alternatively, we can start from the reduced gradients.

They depend on the details of the calculation. The second to be mentioned, for As, will define the second type of atom. Only differences of eigenenergies, as well as differences with the potential.

However, a GW result is hardly meaningful beyond 0. In that way, we will verify convergence aspects that could be very cumbersome at least in the framework of a tutorial if more k—points were used. Most of the variables can be used in the multi—dataset mode see section 3. On some machines, this does not work always we do not know why You can either launch the program alone: However, the gap energy difference between valence and conduction states is likely correct within 0. For this, you should read the section 3.


One cannot rely on the convergence of the macroscopic dielectric constant to assess the convergence of the GW energies. The doubling of the perturbation allows for a rather simple higher—order estimation, as we will see later.

So, we will not change our pseudopotential. Chelikowski, Electronic structure and optical properties of semiconductors, Springer—Verlag New—York When tolwfr is 0. You can still use the double loop feature with udtset 1 2 which reduces to a single loopto minimize the modifications to the file.

It is often needed to redo the calculations for different values of some parameter, letting all the other things equal. Note that the number of SCF cycles drops from 7 to 5 when the wavefunctions are read from the previous dataset. This paper does NOT reflect the present status of the code. Many convergence parameters have been already identified. Wyckoff, Crystal structures, Ed.

Integer for eXchange-Correlation choice Characteristic: Most of the discrepancy comes from the too low value of ecut.

The weight given to each k—point is provided 75 3. It can performs molecular dynamics. A dataset index is created by the concatenation of the outer loop index and the inner loop index. This stopping criterion is not allowed for RF abunit.
