Which parameter is added to the LO-TO split when calculating the phonon spectrum？

### Re: DFPT

See, e.g. eq 61 in

There is a sum evaluated over the different born charges projected on the TO mode you want to renormalize. The change is non-analytical in the sense that it depends on which direction your q vector points when you take the limit q -> 0 (discontinuous at Gamma).

I don't understand what you mean by parameter.

The formula cited calculates the value of the LO-TO phonon frequency split, and is calculated in anaddb for each q vector direction (q->0) given in the "second list of q2ph" (see the tutorials on response functions).
