What is the appropriate way of determining a value for the Hubbard-like potential U for LDA+U / GGA+U calculations?

This is a bit late, but I would say the short answer to your direct question is: technically no, there is no "standard" reliable way, since there are several approaches to determining U self-...

What is the appropriate way of determining a value for the Hubbard-like potential U for LDA+U / GGA+U calculations?

You can calculate U in an ab initio way via linear response theory, for instance. See an example here. However, there is no guarantee that a linear response U value is empirically ideal. That is part ...

Database or repository with values for the Hubbard potential U?

Unfortunately, I don't believe such a resource exists. One should keep in mind that it's not just a matter of a single U value for every metal, of course. The "best" empirical U value will depend on ...

What is the appropriate way of determining a value for the Hubbard-like potential U for LDA+U / GGA+U calculations?

The answer is based on Chapter 1 - The DFT+U: Approaches, Accuracy, and Applications from the book Density Functional Calculations: Recent Progresses of Theory and Application For practical ...

The Hund's J - Why can this be quantified?

When I first read your question, I found it somewhat puzzling. I have to admit, I still do in part. Why? Well, even your link defines $J$ as a sum of matrix elements $\langle m,m'|V_{ee}|m',m\rangle$. ...

How to calculate the potential in Hubbard-U correction and when to apply it?

I assume you mean including a Hubbard U potential within a Kohn-Sham density functional theory (DFT) calculation. The main reason why you might wish to do this is because you are studying a material ...

In which conditions can the self-consistent Hubbard U value calculated using Quantum Espresso be used for other VASP calculations?

I have looked into this a bit, I think in general it is ill-advised to mix codes like this unless it is needed, but VASP does not support self-consistent hubbard U (no perturbations at non-zero U). ...

Hubbard model SU(2) symmetry: manifest invariance

The Hubbard Model is already manifestly SU(2) spin-rotation invariant because there are no terms that connect the $\uparrow$ and $\downarrow$ sectors (here by connect, I mean change a $\uparrow$ to a $...

Is it necessary to use DFT+U when calculating binding energy?

I think the number of $\ce{Ni}$ atoms is too few compared to the organic species, I am afraid the use of an inconsistent $U$ makes the problem more complicated besides the computational cost mentioned ...

could meta-GGA-r2scan descript d electron localization and polaron the same as Hybrid functional?

If I do understand correctly your question, you ask if an exchange correlation functional (r2scan or another functionals in the future) can describe correctly strongly correlated systems. The answer ...

Phonon Dispersion of SrTiO3, EuTiO3 using Quantum Espresso (DFT-U)

Follow up: Using a fixed occupation it was possible to get the dielectric constant since then QE won't treat the system as a metal anymore. Since STO is not stable at 0K, ph.x only showed imaginary ...
