no k-resolved spectral function as in DMFT tutorial [SOLVED]

Dear all, I use the version 9.4.0 of abinit. I have an issue in generating the k-resolved spectral function as in section 7 of the tutorial https://docs.abinit.org/tutorial/dmft/#7-electronic-structure-of-srvo3-k-resolved-spectral-function Despite I follow all the steps as described in the page, I d...

Re: Wrong Berry phase with LOBPCG

Dear Jordan, concerning your remarks: 1) yes, the energy is OK, 2) also the density is OK, and 3) forces are different only along the z direction because the electric field is applied along only the z direction Concerning the tests: 1) I cannot try it because with electric field the number of bands ...

SCAN+rvv10 functional

Dear all, I am wondering if it is possible to use the SCAN+rvv10 functional (m) in abinit. I didn't find any option for it, but maybe it is already implemented in the development version and it can be used by a proper choice of multiple parameters. Thanks a lot in advance for your reply.
