LWANNIER90 = .TRUE. | .FALSE.
Default: LWANNIER90 = .FALSE.
Description: LWANNIER90=.TRUE. switches on the interface between VASP and WANNIER90.
N.B.: At present the VASP2WANNIER90 interface works with WANNIER90 v1.2, not with WANNIER90 v2.0 (yet).
For LWANNIER90=.TRUE., VASP will run wannier_setup in library mode (see Chapter 6 of the WANNIER90 manual).
The VASP2WANNIER90 interface will write the following files that WANNIER90 needs as input:
- 1. If this file does not exist, VASP will create it and write the following information onto it:
num_wann = NBANDS begin unit_cell_cart ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... end unit_cell_cart begin atoms_cart ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... end atoms_cart mp_grid = .. .. .. begin kpoints ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... end kpoints
- Where the unit_cell_cart, atoms_cart, and kpoints blocks, and mp_grid array, will be set in accordance with the setup of the VASP calculation (i.e., basically the information from the POSCAR and KPOINTS files). For the meaning of these tags and blocks please refer to the WANNIER90 manual.
- 2. If the wannier90.win file already exists, VASP will only add the the aforementioned information insofar it is not already present. This means that VASP will check, for instance, whether or not the wannier90.win file contains a kpoints-block, and add one if not. If it finds a kpoints-block, however, it will not check whether this block tallies with the present set of k-points used in the VASP calculation!
- 3. The user may create a wannier90.win file prior to running VASP and executing the VASP2WANNIER90 interface, and specify any tag and/or block that is understood by wannier_setup and/or wannier_run. The most common example of this is probably the projections-block that specifies the initial guess for the maximally localized Wannier functions (see Chapter 3 of the WANNIER90 manual).
- If a projections-block has been specified in the wannier90.win file, VASP writes the projections of the Bloch functions onto the relevant projectors to the wannier90.amn file (see Chapter 3 of the WANNIER90 manual).
- If LWRITE_UNK=.TRUE. is set in the INCAR file, VASP writes the cell-periodic part of the wave functions in spin-channel s at k-point p to the file wannier90.UNKp.s.
Mind: VASP needs to be compiled with the following additional precompiler flag:
and the variable LIB in the makefile must contain an entry that points to libwannier.a.
LIB = -L../vasp.5.lib -ldmy \ ../vasp.5.lib/linpack_double.o $(SCA) $(LAPACK) $(BLAS)
might be changed to
LIB = -L../vasp.5.lib -ldmy \ ../vasp.5.lib/linpack_double.o ../wannier90-1.2/libwannier.a $(SCA) $(LAPACK) $(BLAS)
depending on where you have installed WANNIER90, obviously.
