optimization

Postby admin » Wed Nov 16, 2005 1:43 pm

if you want to fix just one parameter (V not fixed) when doing a structure optimisation, you have to do it as a series of independent runs with the respective Bravais matrices.
Please carefully check the convergence of the basis set size and the k-meshes, to avoid errors due to different effective cutoffs at
different volumes:
set ENCUT to at least 1.3*max(ENMAX).
