Band structure with additive dispersion methods

Let's say I optimized geometry with PBE+D3, does it matter if I make single point bandstructure calculation with just PBE or PBE+D3 since D3 is a additive method.

Best vdW correction functional for transition metal dichalcogenides

For relaxation of transition metal dichalcogenides (e.g.: WS2) using the VASP code, what is the best choice for vdW correction method (e.g.: DFT-D2, DFT-D3 or optB88-vdW) that can give you good ...

Difference between Van der Waals (DFT-D and DFT-D3) corrections in ab-initio calculations

In Kohn-Sham DFT calculations, Van der Waals corrections are often implemented in the structure optimization calculations because the typical functionals such as LDA and GGA are found to not treat ...

What are the different ways of calculating dispersion constants?

There are many different dispersion corrections out there. The most famous is D3 [1] (and the new D4 [2]), but there's probably other approaches too. The dispersion energy can be written as: $$ E_{\...
