# LBONE

**LBONE** = .TRUE. | .FALSE.

Default: **LBONE** = .FALSE.

Description: **LBONE** calculates the two-center contributions to the chemical shift tensor.

**LBONE** switches on two-center contributions to the NMR chemical shift tensor.
These are contributions due to the augmentation
currents in other PAW spheres than the sphere with the atom for which the shift tensor is calculated.
Typically these contributions are safely neglected.
It makes sense to include them for accurate calculations with hard potentials (`*_h`)
on systems containing (non-hydrogen) atoms from the top rows of the periodic
table (B, C, N, O, F), typically with short bonds, e.g. C_{2}H_{2}, where
effects up to a few ppm are possible. For such systems using standard potentials
typically introduces larger inaccuracies. The two-center contributions are calculated using
a multipole expansion of the current density that is represented on the plane wave grid.^{[1]}
