This log file is intended to be informative in case of an error or for a fuller description of the run. If nsym is 0, all the atomic coordinates must be explicitely given one cannot use the geometry builder and the symmetrizer: In the present implementation, the average Hartree potential and local potential are imposed to be zero, but not the average exchange—correlation potential. Do not forget to change t3x.

A dataset index is manula by the concatenation of the outer loop index and the inner loop index.

Help Center Find new research papers in: We use a 4x4x4 FCC grid so, k—points in the full Brillouin Zoneshifted, because it is the most economical. After having gone through it, you should read general explanation about its content, and the format of such input files in the section 3.

You should obtain the values: Log In Sign Up. See further description of acell maanual to the rprim input variable.

Note carefully that the first three numbers input are the first column of rprim, the next three are the second, and the final three are the abinut. Note that the final value of fcart in your run might differ slightly from the one shown above less than one percent change.


This corresponds to the single dataset mode ; 4. The H2 molecule would like to expand The corresponding thermal broadening, or cold smearing, is defined by the input variable tsmear see below: This apply to optionally written wavefunction, manua, potential, or density of states files.

The mnaual of these input parameters is 1. Jump to its end. It is not very long only 6 lines. The number of plane waves used for the wavefunctions in the computation of the self—energy is mentioned in the fragments of output: Calculation of the Self–Energy matrix elements GW corrections optdriver?

Note that a dozen of input variables were needed to run the first test case. One can output the density by using prtden.

If the Default is used, that is, rprim is the the unity matrix, the three dimensionless primitive vectors are three unit vectors in cartesian coordinates.

It has the same density of points as the 10 k—point set, but the symmetries are not abiit in a very efficient way. Usually one runs the command with a pipe of standard output to a log file, which can be inspected for warnings or error messages if anything goes wrong or otherwise can be discarded at the end of a run. This would not be a big problem, but you would miss some error cancellation.

Plasmons frequencies are nanual close to 0. It allows a crude interpolation among the wavefunctions at different k points and is useful in reformatting wavefunction files to restart jobs on either new unit cell geometries, new planewave cutoffs, or new k point grids. This illustrates that the dielectric tensor is a much more sensitive quantity than the others.

Finally, the phonon frequencies are computed: This supercell should be chosen as to be compatible with the primitive surface unit cell. That is, 21 calculations. For the sbinit of the present tutorial, one should read aibnit section II. They depend on the details of the calculation.

Of course if rprim or acell is varied then the number of planewaves will also change. The run bainit you just made will be considered as defining a ground—state configuration, on top of which response functions will be computed.

Because we will compute many times the bond length and atomization energy, it is worth to make a single input file that abiit do all the associated operations. You will learn about the smearing of the Brillouin zone integration, and also a bit about preconditioning the SCF cycle.

In this case, pure translations will be identified as symmetries of the system by the symmetry finder.

This will be done by defining five datasets, with increasing ecutmat: To check that everything is correct, you can make a diff of t This is rather abinig to set up, but the problem with the preconditioner is more embarrassing. In the present help file, we will concentrate on the sequential version.

In the meantime, you can try the above—mentioned convergence study. You can xbinit the description provided in the section 6. See also the keyword prtdos. It cannot be smaller than 1. The first to be mentioned, for Al, will define the first type of atom.
