MIX_METRIC_Q (.param)

Keyword type



This keyword determines the weighting factor for the densities used in the density mixing scheme.

CASTEP uses a weighting factor when evaluating scalar products of densities. The factor depends on the wave vector q, according to:

f(q) = (q2 + q12)/q2

where q1 is the value of the MIX_METRIC_Q parameter.

CASTEP sets the value of q1 automatically if MIX_METRIC_Q is not specified.


-1 - CASTEP will automatically select the appropriate value


MIX_METRIC_Q : 20.0 1/ang
