Handling multiple self-consistent solutions with DFT+U

It is well-established that within the DFT+U framework, one can achieve several self-consistent solutions with greatly varying energies for the same exact magnetic ordering. In 2010, Meredig et al. ...

DFT+U for RPA Ground State

For RPA calculations in VASP, a four step process can be utilized where the first step is to compute the occupied orbitals at either the GGA or hybrid GGA level. I am curious with materials that are ...

Hubbard U value on LaAlO3/SrTiO3 interface

I want to do a GGA+U calculation on the LaAlO3/SrTiO3 heterostructure to study the 2DEG formed at the interface. In all the references I came across they used U around 4eV-6eV on Ti 3d orbitals, I'm ...

How to plot downfolded bands from DFT bands?

Once you mapped the high symmetry points from primitive cell to the super cell, you need to plot the downfolded bands. As we know in DFT output of band structure calculation we get a set of E vs k ...
