### Re: Computing the relaxed ion elastic tensor

Dear Salah, Comment regarding the first problem: relaxed ions means you want the effect of atoms moving due to the change of interatomic force constants related to a strain perturbation such that you nee calculation of phonons to get it, see: https://journals.aps.org/prb/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevB.72...

### Re: Posdoppler variable missing

Dear Error123,

The tutorial input file works fine on my side. Which version of Abinit are you using? If it is the latest, could you check that there is no hidden typo in the flag name?

Best wishes,

Eric

Hi Marco,

Hard to say... I guess you are running with PAW, right? JTH vs GBRV?

Did you test with increasing nline, or playing with diemac and diemix?

Dear Kjell, I cannot help you in calculating the formation energy but I would start to not relax the cell parameter as for a concentration going to zero the cell parameter should be the pure bulk one. Additionally, if you have to add a charge to the supercell to get charge neutrality, then 100% sure...

### Re: Strange divergence in phonon calculation

Dear Andy,

Another remark: you put 35 bands in your calculation this means, at least with JTH pseudos, that you'll not have any empty bands. If you use metallic occupation, you'll better put more bands (maybe 5-10 more) to be sure things are OK.

Could test this option?

Dear Qwin, The last error message you report is quite clear I think: you have an unstable phonon mode at Gamma (probably polar) such that the dielectric is not defined. It is possible that the space group in which you are running corresponds to a high-symmetry phase which is not stable and you'll no...

Do you belong to the "extremely rare cases" where the total energy matters?

Dear kojikoji,

The total energy has no physical meaning, only energy differences have sense. Which one of the two are you comparing, if it is the total energy then each code can give a different one, depending on different settings, pseudos, etc.

Dear Andy,

Is your system metallic or insulator (CrI3 is not clear depending on the magnetism, structure, etc)?

You use a metallic occupation with the default tsmear, which might be too large for your system?

Dear qwin,

At which dataset do you have this error message?

A question: do you only want to compute dielectric constant and piezoelectric tensor? If so, they are only qpt=Gamma (0 0 0) point properties such that you do not need all these different qpt phonons to be calculated.
