In general, these tags control when the optimization of a single band is stopped within the iterative matrix diagonalization schemes:
Within all implemented iterative schemes a distinction between empty and occupied bands is made to speed up calculations. Unoccupied bands are optimized only twice, whereas occupied bands are optimized up to four times till another break criterion is met. Eigenvalue/eigenvector pairs for which the partial occupancies are smaller than WEIMIN are treated as unoccupied states (and are thus only optimized twice).
EBREAK determines whether a band is fully converged or not. Optimization of an eigenvalue/eigenvectors pair is stopped if the change in the eigenenergy is smaller than EBREAK.
DEPER is a relative break-criterion. The optimization of a band is stopped after the energy change becomes smaller than DEPER multiplied with the energy change in the first iterative optimization step. The maximum number of optimization steps is always 4.
