Reduced cartesian coordinates must be used for the eventual translations accompanying symmetry operations tnons.

Finally, the excellent agreement between the finite—difference formula and the response—function approach calls for some accuracy considerations. In this case, the gap is also aginit So, the agreement between total—energy estimate and force estimate of the 2DTE can be observed up to the 7th digit, inclusive. Freeman, PRB 41, B.

Let us reiterate that extremely careful pseudopotential design can optimize the convergence of e. However, it is possible to do much better, thanks to the use of a higher—order finite—difference formula. This lesson should take about 1 hour and 30 minutes to be done.

However, the gap energy difference between valence and conduction states is likely correct within 0. This grid does not move when atoms are displaced, and so there is a abihit small variation of the total energy when the system is moved as a whole.

Output from the code goes to several places listed below. In any case, the computation within the response— function formalism is more efficient than using the frozen—phonon technique: These nanual listed below: For comparison with the previous treatment of SCF, one can recompute the result with 3 aluminum layers.

So, one might think that the CPU time will raise accordingly. In case of a ground state calculation, at fixed atomic positions, these subroutines are 1. This exercise will allow you to learn how to use multiple datasets. In what follows, we suggest some interesting values of the shifts, to be used with even values of ngkpt.


If you want to specify only the irreducible set of atoms, use the symmetriser, see the input variable natrd. You might try to use it now, to manal two—dimensional cuts in the density, and visualize the charge density contours. The rprim variable is thus used to define directions of the primitive vectors, that will be multiplied by the appropriate length manial acell 1acell 2or acell 3 respectively to give the dimensional primitive translations in real space in cartesian coordinates.

The density will be output in the t1xo DEN file. This is kind of a minimal slab: However, this k—point grid does not contains the Gamma point, and, at present, one cannot perform calculations of the self—energy corrections for other k—points than those present in the grid of k—points in the KSS file. There are maanual methodologies to compute the optimal distance between the two Hydrogen atoms: At first order, this quantity is the product of the 2DTE by the reduced coordinate difference.

The supercell to use is the double of the previous cell that had two layers of Aluminum atoms along the [0 0 1] direction. If you decide to use these files, do not maual to change the file names in the t1x.

For a successful run the user will generally delete the log file afterwards. See the input variable ecutsm, for the smoothing of the kinetic energy, needed to optimize unit cell parameters. For the 3 vacuum layer case, the self—consistency problem becomes even more severe than with 2 vacuum layers!

Finally, in order to make numerical errors cancel, it is important to compute the above—mentioned difference in the same box, for the same cut—off, and even for a location in the box that is similar to the molecule case although the latter might not be so important.

Gaussian smearing, corresponding to the 0 order Hermite polynomial of Methfessel and Paxton. It will allow to obtain 0. Suppose that you want wbinit make a L—Gamma—X— U— Gamma circuit, with 10, 12 and 17 divisions for each line each segment has a different length in reciprocal space, and these divisions give approximately the same distance between points along a line.


For this purpose, one can sbinit another calculation, in which the change of reduced coordinate along the first axis is 0. The remaining of the discrepancy may come partly from the pseudopotentials, that are particularly soft. The avinit will suggest to treat at least one unoccupied state or band in order to be able to monitor such a closure.

Note that the oscillator strength needs to be defined with respect to an origin of coordinate, thanks to the input variable boxcenter.

For self consistent calculations iscf positive it is important to test the adequacy of the k—point integration. This convergence is controlled by the parameters toldfe, mwnual, tolwfr, and tolvrs, as well as the parameter nstep. See the keyword prtden. For the latter, it is supposed that the electrons cannot propagate from one slab to its image in the [0 0 1] direction, so that the kz component of the special k—points can abiinit taken 0: Except when alchemical mixing of pseudopotentials is used, the number of types of atoms will be equal to the number of pseudopotentials npsp abiniy be provided by the user.

The first pseudopotential will be assigned the type number 1, and so on. From the output file, here is the bainit of acell: This is provided for testing purposes. None of them should appear when the run is completely normal. Skip to main content. The experimental value at 25 degree Celsius is 4. Well, maybe not immediately Then, the Born effective charges are given, either computed from the derivative of the wavefunctions with respect to the electric field, or computed from the derivative of the wavefunctions with respect to an atomic displacement, as explained in section II of X.
