I have a followup question on the -metal option in the NMR calculation. My guess is that this option brings up some code to find the fermi surface and better identify which states are filled or empty, prior to the chemical shift calculation. Is that right, or does this option also add in a contribution of the paramagnetic (Knight shift) contribution?
Thanks for the help. -Joe Ross
