The run will take a few seconds. Do not try to understand everything immediately. It has been computed by counting the number of valence electrons in the unit cell summing the valence electrons brought by tutoria, pseudopotential then occupying the lowest states look at the ” occ ” variableand adding some states at least one, maybe more, depending on the size of the system.

Concerning parallelism, there is another set of specialized lessons. Do not forget to change abihit.

ABINIT. Tutorial #3

Jump to its end. Do not try to understand everything immediately.

ABINIT is able to examine automatically different k point grids, and to propose the best grids for integration. The following schema should help you to understand these dependencies. This exercise will allow you to learn how to use multiple datasets.

ABINIT tutorial, first (basic) lesson:

This defines the force threshold to consider that the geometry is converged. We will now complete the description of the meaning of each term: For each of these lessons, you are suposed to be familiarized with the corresponding tutorial for the sequential calculation.


The code will stop if the residual forces are below that value before reaching ” ntime “.

For the stopping criterion ” tolmxf “, use the reasonable value of 5. The maximal number of plane waves ” mpw ” is mentioned in the memory evaluation section: It has been derived from ” ecut ” and the dimension of the cell abihit acell “. You should get some difference, but rather inoffensive ones, like differences in the name of input files or timing differences, e.

ABINIT, third lesson of the tutorial:

Please, read it now it will take one minute or so. For Hydrogen, we are lucky that the ground state is spherical 1s orbitaland that the highest occupied level and lowest unoccupied level, although degenerate, have a different spin.

If you decide to use the t In addition, more complex examples are given than those found in the basic on-line tutorials, and the xbinit with experts helps new users fine-tune parameters to deal properly with the calculations on a case-to-case basis.

Please, read it now. Is the energy likely more converged than toldfe? In what follows, we will suppose that you can call it by simply typing “abinit”, even if the actual command must be something like.

Set the input variable ” ntime ” to 10, it will be largely enough. Basic Theory and Practical Methods.

For each of these lessons, you are supposed abinir be familiarized with the corresponding tutorial for the sequential calculation. When it exists, the default value is mentioned at the end of the section related to each input variable, tutoiral the corresponding input variables file.


There is another additional group of lessons on many-body perturbation theory GW approximation, Bethe-Salpeter equationto be done sequentially: The run lasts a few seconds. It is implicit that in “real life”, you should do a convergence test with respect to ecut You might try to use it now, to generate two-dimensional cuts in the density, and visualize the charge density contours.

The latter solution is of course preferable, as the response time will not depend on the network abinitt. Finally, it might also be that the default FFT algorithm differs from the one of the reference machine, in which case the line mentioning fftalg will differ ifftalg will not be It is the appropriate time to read also the description of the potential files and wavefunctions files, as these files contain the same header as the density file, see sections 6.

The interatomic distance in the t Allan, First-principles computation of material properties: If the code does not stop there, the input parameters are consistent. They might be used for other operating systems, but the commands have to be adapted.

According to these data see xcartthe optimal interatomic distance is about 1. The very first step is a detailed tour of the input and output files: You will discover more about this file in the section 1.
