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. ...

Discrepancy between Force Convergence in Geometrical Optimization and SCF Calculation in VASP: Reasons and Troubleshooting Suggestions

During a geometrical optimization of ions and lattice parameters in VASP, the forces acting on atoms were minimized to less than 0.01 eV/Å. However, when performing the subsequent self-consistent ...
