About Wien
English (USA)

A Mailing list for WIEN2k users.

Please post questions, suggestions or comments about WIEN2k ONLY in this list.

Please follow the following "Nettiquette" (depending on your question, at least some of these points should be included in your mail):

  • I am running wien version xxx on a machine of type yyy with operating system zzz, fortran compiler aaa and math
    libraries bbb.
  • The purpose of my calculations is to get quantity ccc.
  • I am running this case (case.struct) using this input (here, case.in1 may be relevant? Certainly give things like XC
    potential, rkmax, size of k-mesh) and these commands (eg. : run_lapw -p -so from command line, or w2web).
  • The program stops at this point, or produces suspicious output here ... This is the content of the error file / the
    case.dayfile / STDOUT. This is the bottom of the output file (like the part of case.output1 you show below).
  • I have already tried the following things (bla bla bla) and they did or did not work, did or did not make any

You should also obey the following points:

  • Yes, I have browsed the archives AND READ THE USERS GUIDE and the FAQ pages Peter provides, but I couldn't solve my
    problem that way.
  • If suggestions from the mailing list actually solved your problem (or you solved it some other way), would you please
    share that with us?
