Dear all,

I am a new user of Siesta. I am working on graphene and Zigzag Carbon
nanotubes. I have encountered a serious problem with defining k-grid
cutoff in my jobs. Here is a part of my input:

kgrid cutoff 15.003 Ang

But I have this in my output file:

siesta: k-grid: Number of k-points =     1
siesta: k-grid: Cutoff (effective) =     2.460 Ang
siesta: k-grid: Supercell and displacements
siesta: k-grid:    0   1   0      0.000
siesta: k-grid:    1   0   0      0.000
siesta: k-grid:    0   0   1      0.000
Naive supercell factors:     4    4    1

Which gives 2.46 Ang cutoff an just gamma point!!! I tried the
kgrid_Monkhorst_Pack with 31X31X1 grid for graphene, but from the
outputs I can say that the effective k-grid cutoff is totally
independent of the mesh grid I've defined in my input and it just
changes by changing the length of the vector in Z direction (which is
perpendicular to the graphene plane) in my unit cell.

Could anybody guide me why I get these weird outputs?!

Thanks in advance,
