INCAR file

INCAR is the central input file of VASP. It determines 'what to do and how to do it', and contains a relatively large number of parameters. Most of these parameters have convenient defaults, and a user unaware of their meaning should not change any of the default values. Because of the complexity of the INCAR file, we have devoted a section on its own to the INCAR file (see section 6).
