I suggest you take your time to read this if you have not yet, I am also
learning like you. I might try to experiment with you system to see what I
get with same pseudopotentials as you used.


and then look at this tutorial

> Hello QE users
> I want to find U value for CeO2 which is having 81 atoms. I already
> calculated this value by using linear response (http://hjklol.mit.edu/
> content/calculating-hubbard-u). I got the U value initially in negative
> numbers in this case *diago_thr_init* value was default, so that I
> changed *diago_thr_init* to 10^-11 then I got U value as 0.00881. From
> literature I found this value should be around 4.5 - 7eV  (Phy. Rev. B 75,
> 035109, 2007͒). I have some doubts regarding this calculation
> Is that correct, occupations means I took value in the name of *"N of
> occupied +U levels" *(i.e sum of Tr[ns(na)] values on all 27 Ce atoms)?
> What is the unit for value I got (0.00881)? (Ry or eV or any other )
> Is U parameter value depend on number of atoms in unit cell?
> Is there any other mistake I done in my input file ? (input file attached)
> *Conditions I applied in my calculations:*
> Surface calculation with vacuum 15A
> First three layers relaxed (two oxygen and one ceria layers) remaining are
> frozen
> Thanks in advance and I will be greatly appreciated for your help
> (input file and results of my calculation attached)
