Setting electronic options

Electronic options must be set for Energy, Geometry Optimization, Dynamics, Elastic Constants, and TS Search calculations. The settings used for Properties calculations are copied from the input files of the calculation that is to be restarted and are unaffected by any changes made via the interface.

The basic controls used to define the calculations are available on the Setup and Electronic tabs of the CASTEP Calculation dialog. The important settings that you might need to modify are:
