Block

Description

This data block contains a list of k-points at which the Brillouin zone will be sampled during a self consistent calculation to find the electronic ground state, along with the associated weights. It has the following format:

%BLOCK KPOINTS_LIST
	R1i     R1j     R1k     R1w
	R2i     R2j     R2k     R2w
	.
	.
	.
%ENDBLOCK KPOINTS_LIST

The first three entries on a line are the fractional positions of the k-point relative to the reciprocal space lattice vectors.

The final entry on a line is the weight of the k-point relative to the others specified. The sum of the weights must be equal to 1.
