use of CAM-B3lyp via Libxc

Hi all,

As I am new to ABINIT, I browsed the forums and found that hybrid functionals (ie PBE0) and the range separated HSE06 were usable in latest release of ABINT via Libxc. I was wondering if other range separated functionals were both accessible via libxc - primarily CAM-B3lyp - and tested. My intent is to perform band structure calculations using CAM-B3lyp. Any help would be appreciated.

Dear Zack,
At present (v8.10.2), PBE0, HSE06 (also 03) and B3LYP are available, but not CAM-B3LYP, sorry !
I had a look at the original article, it would be quite easy to implement it.
Perhaps this summer ...
Best wishes,

Hi Xavier,

Thanks for the response. I agree the modifications should be straightforward; in fact, I am trying something similar now in Espresso. If I were going to make an attempt at implementing CAM-B3LYP in Ab Init, could you direct me to the relevant files that would need to be modified or to someone who might know this answer?
