Clearly if you want a relaxed structure you must either run long enough or make repeated runs until the largest force in the problem output as fmax is smaller than what you will tolerate see tolmxf.

Going beyond that number will make the code stop very rapidly.

Then, for the three datasets, you will find specialized additional input variables. The results of this calculation are as follows: Now, you can start reading the description of the remaining of the t The basics of the stress tensor are described in O. Most of the variables can be used in the multi—dataset mode see section 3. One can observe that the action—reaction law is fulfilled only approximately manuall the system.

The description of the header is presented in section 6. Then, you can make the run.


Copy the file t1x. The technical design of the pseudopotential also affects the quality of the results.

Usually one wants nstep to be set larger than needed to reach a given tolerance, or else one wants to restart insufficiently converged calculations until the required tolerance is reached. The choice between different algorithms for SCF is possible: Of course, the number of states to be treated is minimal!

When you have read the input file, you can run the code, as usual it will run a few seconds. You have to modify rprim double the cell along [0 0 1]the atomic positions, as well as the k—point mesh. It can happen that the highest or two highest band sif not separated by a gap from non— abinot bands, can exhibit a very slow convergence rate.

They give acceptable results, not very accurate, but, more important, the speed is reasonable for a tutorial.

Have also a look at kpt and iscf. B 54, So, you run t In fact, the dielectric constant is representative of only one element, the head, of the full dielectric matrix. It is convenient to take the vacuum region as having a multiple of the width of the aluminum layers, but this is not mandatory. Control the choice of exchange and correlation xc.

Now, you can make the run. The 16 colors recognized by xmgrace are: The wavefunction file is unformatted and can be very large. This is why we will leave this out of the present tutorial, and consider that we already know a sufficient k—point abinig, for the last calculation.


Do not forget to change t3x.

Then, comes the definition of parameters needed to compute the self—energy. If there is no symmetry in the problem then set nsym to 1, because the identity is still a symmetry. For self consistent calculations iscf positive it is important to test the adequacy of the k—point integration.

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

Some of them are for the experienced user.

However, to generate the KSS file see kssform the relevant number of bands is given by nbandkss. In the present case, one must compute first the total energy of an isolated hydrogen atom.

Then, we need to analyze the different output files. The output data are: When the primitive vectors of the lattice form a BCC lattice, with rprim There is a good news about this result, and a bad news.

Establishes a normalizing denominator for each k—point. Let us reiterate that extremely careful majual design can optimize the convergence of e.
