T
Usage: DO_EXTRAPOLATE_KPOINTS FALSE
If true, use a larger k-mesh to extrapolate the k-point integration of W. For example, in 2D, when using KPOINTS 4 4 1, an additional 6x6x1 mesh will be used to extrapolate the k-point integration of W with N_k^-0.5, where Nk is the number of k-points. [Edit on GitHub]

- EXPONENT_TAILORED_WEIGHTS: real = -2.00000000E+000
Usage: EXPONENT_TAILORED_WEIGHTS -2

- KEEP_QUADRATURE: logical = T
Aliases: KEEP_WEIGHTS ,KEEP_QUAD ,KEEP_WEIGHT
Lone keyword:
T
Usage: KEEP_QUADRATURE
Keep the Laplace quadrature defined at the first energy evaluations throughout the run. Allows to have consistent force evaluations. [Edit on GitHub]
- KPOINTS: integer[3] = 0 0 0
Usage: KPOINTS N_x N_y N_z
Keyword activates periodic, low-scaling GW calculations (&LOW_SCALING section also needed). For periodic calculations, kpoints are used for the density response, the Coulomb interaction and the screened Coulomb interaction. For 2d periodic systems, e.g. xz periodicity, please also specify KPOINTS, e.g. N_x 1 N_z. [Edit on GitHub]
- KPOINT_WEIGHTS_W: enum = UNIFORM
Usage: KPOINT_WEIGHTS_W AUTO
Valid values:
TAILORED
Choose k-point integration weights such that the function f(k)=k^alpha is exactly integrated. alpha is specified using EXPONENT_TAILORED_WEIGHTS.AUTO
As ‘TAILORED’, but alpha is chosen automatically according to dimensionality (3D: alpha = -2 for 3D, 2D: alpha = -1 for exchange self-energy, uniform weights for correlation self-energy).UNIFORM
Choose the same weight for every k-point (original Monkhorst-Pack method).
For kpoints in low-scaling GW, a Monkhorst-Pack mesh is used. The screened Coulomb interaction W(k) needs special care near the Gamma point (e.g. in 3d, W(k) diverges at the Gamma point with W(k) ~ k^alpha). KPOINT_WEIGHTS_W decides how the weights of the Monkhorst-Pack mesh are chosen to compute W(R) = int_BZ W(k) exp(ikR) dk (BZ=Brllouin zone). [Edit on GitHub]
- K_MESH_G_FACTOR: integer = 1
The k-mesh for the Green’s function can be chosen to be larger than the k-mesh for W (without much higher computational cost). The factor given here multiplies the mesh for W to obtain the k-mesh for G. Example: factor 4, k-mesh for W: 4x4x1 -> k-mesh for G: 16x16x1 (z-dir. is non-periodic). [Edit on GitHub]
- MAKE_CHI_POS_DEFINITE: logical = T
Lone keyword:
T
Usage: MAKE_CHI_POS_DEFINITE
If true, makes eigenvalue decomposition of chi(iw,k) and removes negative eigenvalues. May increase computational cost significantly. Only recommended to try in case Cholesky decomposition of epsilon(iw,k) fails. [Edit on GitHub]
- MAKE_OVERLAP_MAT_AO_POS_DEFINITE: logical = F
Lone keyword:
T
Usage: MAKE_OVERLAP_MAT_AO_POS_DEFINITE
If true, makes eigenvalue decomposition of S_mu,nu(k) and removes negative eigenvalues. Slightly increases computational cost. Only recommended to try in case Cholesky decomposition of S_mu,nu(k) fails (error message: Cholesky decompose failed: matrix is not positive definite or ill-conditioned; when calling create_kp_and_calc_kp_orbitals). [Edit on GitHub]
- MEMORY_CUT: integer = 5
Usage: MEMORY_CUT 16
Reduces memory for sparse tensor contractions by this factor. A high value leads to some loss of performance. This memory reduction factor applies to storage of the tensors ‘M occ’ / ‘M virt’ but does not reduce storage of ‘3c ints’. [Edit on GitHub]
- MEMORY_INFO: logical = F
Lone keyword:
T
Usage: MEMORY_INFO
Decide whether to print memory info on the sparse matrices. [Edit on GitHub]
- MIN_BLOCK_SIZE: integer = 5
Minimum tensor block size. Adjusting this value may have minor effect on performance but default should be good enough. [Edit on GitHub]
- MIN_BLOCK_SIZE_MO: integer = 64
Tensor block size for MOs. Only relevant for GW calculations. The memory consumption of GW scales as O(MIN_BLOCK_SIZE_MO). It is recommended to set this parameter to a smaller number if GW runs out of memory. Otherwise the default should not be changed. [Edit on GitHub]
- REGULARIZATION_RI: real = 0.00000000E+000
Usage: REGULARIZATION_RI 1.0E-4
Parameter to reduce the expansion coefficients in RI for periodic GW. Larger parameter means smaller expansion coefficients that leads to a more stable calculation at the price of a slightly worse RI approximation. In case the parameter 0.0 is chosen, ordinary RI is used. [Edit on GitHub]
- REL_CUTOFF_TRUNC_COULOMB_RI_X: real = 5.00000000E-001
Usage: REL_CUTOFF_TRUNC_COULOMB_RI_X 0.3
Only active in case TRUNC_COULOMB_RI_X = True. Normally, relative cutoff = 0.5 is good choice; still needs to be evaluated for RI schemes. [Edit on GitHub]
- TRUNC_COULOMB_RI_X: logical = T
Lone keyword:
T
Usage: TRUNC_COULOMB_RI_X
If true, use the truncated Coulomb operator for the exchange-self-energy in periodic GW. [Edit on GitHub]
