### [Wien] Can we eliminate the correlation-exchange effect

Dear wien users I want to study the effect of correlation and exchange upon some properties separately and I want to know if it's possible to do that . i.e. eliminate the exchange effect and maintin the correlation effect and the inverse . NB: I know that we can't do it completly since the both

Thank you a lot Dr Pieper for your contribution I have already given the question to Dr Elias and I am wainting Best regards -- Mr: A.Reggad Laboratoire de Génie Physique Université Ibn Khaldoun - Tiaret Algerie ___ Wien mailing list

### Re: [Wien] How to include the localized d orbitals in the atomic spheres?

Thank you Dr Assmann for the clarification Now , Can we consider a part of d electrons as localized and the other part as itinerant (for example half and half )? Best regards -- Mr: A.Reggad Laboratoire de Génie Physique Université Ibn Khaldoun - Tiaret Algerie

### Re: [Wien] How to include the localized d orbitals in the atomic spheres?

Thank you Dr pieper again for the clarification Now, It's clear for me Another question is as follows: How to consider electrons (for example d electrons ) as localized or itinerant or half half or it's considered within the calculation? Best regards -- Mr: A.Reggad Laboratoire de Génie

### Re: [Wien] How to include the localized d orbitals in the atomic spheres?

Thank you Dr Pieper for the clarification. How much does the including of the localized d orbitals inside the atomic spheres improve the band gap and the magnetic moment ? And how can we include all the localized d orbitals inside the atomic spheres? Best regards Mr: A.Reggad Laboratoire de

### Re: [Wien] How to include the localized d orbitals in the atomic spheres?

Thank you Prof Cottenier for your answer My question is made according to the following statement: " The DFT+U and EECE are applied only inside atomic spheres " What does it mean that and how to realize it ? Best regards -- Mr: A.Reggad Laboratoire de Génie Physique Université Ibn Khaldoun -

### Re: [Wien] How to include the localized d orbitals in the atomic spheres?

Sorry for my question I realized that the energy cut off determine the valence and the core states. The question is now as follows: Wen we use the maximum values for the Rmt such a way the spheres become touched. Does that guarantee that the 3d electrons are all inside atomic spheres? Best

### [Wien] How to include the localized d orbitals in the atomic spheres?

Dear wien users The orbital potential in DFT+U and EECE for localized orbitals will be included only inside the atomic spheres . To include these localized orbitals, we need a value for energy cut off larger than -6 Ry (maybe -2 Ry ). Is it the only way to include the localized orbitals in the

### Re: [Wien] Discrepancy in the simulation of the paramagnetic state

Thank you All for your contributions to enrich the subject . >From the beginning, I was convinced with the statement of prof Blaha, But when you find in literature some work where they simulate the paramagnetic state by the non-spin-polarized calculation this causes a troube. On this base, I

### Re: [Wien] Discrepancy in the simulation of the paramagnetic state

Thank you Prof Blaha for your quick answer. The Ni atom is 3d transition metal . But my question is about the simulation of the paramagnetic state. There are many people that considere that the paramagnetic state is the non-spin polarierd one and the magnetic moment is zero, but you say no and

### [Wien] Discrepancy in the simulation of the paramagnetic state

Dear Wien2k and Prof Blaha According to Prof Blaha ( https://www.mail-archive.com/wien@zeus.theochem.tuwien.ac.at/msg01133.html ) , in the paramagnetic state, the local magnetic moments still exists bur oriented in arbitrary directions. And according to this approach , there are infinite

### Re: [Wien] How to get the experimental gap with mBj, PBE+U and EECE methods

Thank you again Prof Tran and Prof Laurence for your notes and guidenesses. For the procedure to searching the best method giving the best gap I am looking for . Best regards -- Mr: A.Reggad Laboratoire de Génie Physique Université Ibn Khaldoun - Tiaret Algerie
