DescriptionStatic VASP pseudpotential GGA-PBE DFT calculation of the potential energy and atomic forces acting on a randomly perturbed 8-atom cubic diamond unit cell of silicon atoms (this should correspond to the unrelaxed configuration used in KIM Tests TriclinicPBCEnergyAndForces_diamond_8atom_Si__TE_066954718002_000 and TriclinicPBCEnergyAndForces_diamond_8atom_Si__TE_066954718002_001). A plane-wave basis with an energy cutoff of 250 eV was used. A 11 x 11 x 11 gamma-centered Monkhorst-Pack k-point mesh was used (generating a total of 666 irredundant k-points).

abstract: We present a detailed description and comparison of algorithms for performing ab-initio quantum-mechanical calculations using pseudopotentials and a plane-wave basis set. We will discuss: (a) partial occupancies within the framework of the linear tetrahedron method and the finite temperature density-functional theory, (b) iterative methods for the diagonalization of the Kohn-Sham Hamiltonian and a discussion of an efficient iterative method based on the ideas of Pulay's residual minimization, which is close to an order Natoms2 scaling even for relatively large systems, (c) efficient Broyden-like and Pulay-like mixing methods for the charge density including a new special ‘preconditioning’ optimized for a plane-wave basis set, (d) conjugate gradient methods for minimizing the electronic free energy with respect to all degrees of freedom simultaneously. We have implemented these algorithms within a powerful package called VAMP (Vienna ab-initio molecular-dynamics package). The program and the techniques have been used successfully for a large number of different systems (liquid and amorphous semiconductors, liquid simple and transition metals, metallic and semi-conducting surfaces, phonons in simple metals, transition metals and semiconductors) and turned out to be very reliable.

title: Efficiency of ab-initio total energy calculations for metals and semiconductors using a plane-wave basis set
type: article
volume: 6
year: 1996
abstract: The construction of accurate pseudopotentials with good convergence properties for the first-row and transition elements is discussed. We show that by combining an improved description of the pseudowavefunction inside the cut-off radius with the concept of ultrasoft pseudopotentials introduced by Vanderbilt optimal compromise between transferability and plane-wave convergence can be achieved. With the new pseudopotentials, basis sets with no more than 75-100 plane waves per atom are sufficient to reproduce the results obtained with the most accurate norm-conserving pseudopotentials.
