LNONCOLLINEAR-tag

Supported as of VASP.4.5.

Setting LNONCOLLINEAR=.TRUE. in the INCAR file allows to perform fully non-collinear magnetic structure calculations. VASP is capable of reading WAVECAR and CHGCAR files from previous non-magnetic or collinear calculations, it is however not possible to rotate the magnetic field locally on selected atoms.

Hence, in practice, we recommend to perform non collinear calculations in two steps:
