ABINIT. New user guide

The procedure to be followed is described with the input variables kptrlen. C of the above—mentioned paper P. The allowed index values are between 1 and The corresponding thermal broadening, or cold smearing, is defined by the input variable tsmear see below: Each parameter value is provided by giving the name of the input variable and then placing the abinnit value s beside the name, separated by one or more spaces.

Although evaluated at zero frequency, it is understood that the ionic response is not included. The difference between the nanual state value Convergence trouble during iterations usually signals closure of the gap. Independently of the use of udtset, rules 2a and 2c will be used abinjt define the value of an input variable: The representation of potential, density and wavefunctions in real space will be done on a regular 3D grid of points.

Also, similar to the single dataset mode.

As a consequence, we will define a double loop over the datasets: The density will be output in the t1xo DEN file. For now, in order to be able to perform a direct comparison with the result of a response— function calculation, we choose as a perturbation the displacement of the Al atom along the first axis of the reduced coordinates.


This parameter gives the number of shifted grids to be used concurrently to generate the full grid of k—points. In this case, the gap is also analyzed: The computation of full phonon band structures and thermodynamical properties.

Fermi-Dirac smearing finite-temperature metal Smeared delta function: For example, natom 3 This gives the number of atoms typat 1 1 2 2 3 typat 1: NOTE that this error due to the Brillouin zone sampling could add to the error due to the choice of ecut that was mentioned previously to be on the order of 0. This tsmear being the lowest one, it is usually the most difficult to converge, and the values acell31,32,33 and 34 are indeed well—converged with respect to the k—point number.

It might be worth to read the full list of abinis input variables. To get accurate stresses may be quite demanding. It echoes the input data, and report on checks of data consistency for each dataset. You should obtain the following results: It will allow to obtain 0.

The use of restartxf is preferred. For this purpose, one can perform another calculation, in which the change of reduced coordinate along the first axis is 0.

The run should take less than one minute. Each line in this section contains the caption and the reduced coordinates of the k-point. See also the input variable nspden for the components of the density matrix with respect to the spin-polarization.

The direction perpendicular to the surface is [0 0 1].

These are listed below: The following topics should be covered later: However, the dimension of some input variables can be specified and read correctly. Enter the email address you signed up with and we’ll email you a reset link.


Two signs will be appended to the variable name instead of one in the simple series case. The difference is 0.

The simplest sort of job computes an electronic structure for a fixed set of atomic positions within a periodic unit cell. Then, read the output file, and note the total energy. Edit the output file.

For the manua, aluminum layer case, one has the non—relaxed total energy: At this stage, many default values have been provided, and the preprocessing is finished. This run might take a few minutes, and is abknit longer of the tutorial. Then, the value of x is 1, 2, Still, be sure that your supercell is large enough for your properties of interest to be accurate at the level you want it to be.

Now, can you write an input file that will do the computation described above interatomic distances from 1. Experimental data give a surface energy around 0.

The technical design of the pseudopotential also affects the quality of the results. Copy the file manua. You should edit it, read it carefully, and, because of the use of two types of atoms, have a look at the following input variables:
