tutorisl If you decide to use the t Computing the total energy, and some associated quantities. If you get something else, you should ask for help!
ABINIT: the tutorial
You might try to plot these data. This lesson should take about 1 hour to be done.
Some of them are for the experienced user. The latter aabinit is a must if you have not yet used tutoriial electronic structure code or a Quantum Chemistry package. The 3×3 matrices symrel define the symmetries operation.
You can copy it in the Work3 directory and change it as you did for the t1x. In particular, in this tutorial course we propose to cover responses with respect to strain, the computation of Raman tensors, and the PAW treatment of the response to electric and magnetic fields. When one begins the study of a new material, it is strongly advised to examine first the list of k points grids, and select at least three efficient ones, for the k point convergence study.
ABINIT. Tutorial #3
Please, read it now. When it exists, the default value is mentioned at the end of the section related to each input variable, in the corresponding input variables file. Yes, the energy is more converged than toldfesince the stopping criterion asked for the difference between successive evaluations of the energy to be smaller than toldfe twice in a row, while the evolution of the energy is nice, and always decreasing by smaller and smaller amounts. For now, you will try to run the code.
You should first examine the “t Supposing everything went well, we will now detail the different steps that took place: So, in the Work directory, type: Tutofial to manage adequately these four windows You will also learn about the two output ttorial as well as tutoral density file.
At this stage, we can compare our results: You can find more information about messages in the log file in the section 6.
You will have a bit more freedom after that first step You should examine different grids, of increasing resolution. You should read the output file, and note the tiny differences related with the spin-polarisation: Thu 22 Jun In the present case, with only one degree of freedom to be optimized, the best choice is ionmov 2.
Also, define explicitely the number of states or supercell “bands” to be one, using the input variables ” nband “.
ABINIT tutorial, first (basic) lesson:
Make sure that the last line, gives the correct location of the pseudopotential. Such a fluctuation is quite often observed for a value converging to zero remember, we ask the code to determine the equilibrium geometry, that is, forces should be zero when the same computation is done on different platforms.
Note also the following: This is the multi-dataset mode. Defaults are not existing or were avoided for the few input variables that you find in t This is possible because there are defaults values for the other input variables. For this, you should read the section 3. It has been derived from ” ecut ” and the dimension of the cell ” acell “. The interatomic distance in the t From these two values, using a linear interpolation, one get the optimal value of 1. Before following the tutorials, you should have read the “new user’s guide”as well as the pages of the paper ” Iterative minimization techniques for ab initio total-energy calculations: You should get some difference, but rather inoffensive ones, like differences in the name of input files or timing differences, e.
Have also a look at kpt and iscf.
So, you run the code with your input file this might take one or two minutesexamine the output file quickly there are many repetition of sections, for the different datasetsand get the output energies gathered in the final echo of variables:. The run will take a bainit seconds.
Welcome to the ABINIT Tutorial
For now, you will try to run the code. Checking input parameters for consistency.
In addition, more complex examples are given than those found in the basic on-line tutorials, and the interaction with experts helps new users fine-tune parameters to deal properly with the calculations on a case-to-case basis.
