tolwfr and tolvrs

Post by hameed1987 » Sun Mar 15, 2020 1:14 pm

Dear All,


In the input file of GW, Calculation of the GW corrections for the band gap at Γ,
tolwfr and tolvrs both are used. However in inpuvariables, The use of this variable (tolwfr) forbids the use of tolvrs and some others variables.
Also, The use of this variable (tolvrs) forbids the use of tolwfr and some others variables.
Please informe me should I use both, or just one?
Also, could any of you please tell me the best value of tolwfr and tolvrs for ternary Perovskite solar cells.

Great Thanks
Dear All,

Dear Hameed,
tolwfr is a stop criterion on the wave function residual and tovrs on the potential/density such that only one of the two should be given to stop the SCF.
Which value of tolwfr/tolvrs depends on which precision you want/need on the properties you want to calculate, it can be 1E-8 or 1E-22, this has to checked by the user.
Best wishes,
