Hello all,

I have gone through all the archived discussion about cohesive energy
calculation.

I am trying to calculate the cohesive energy of Ti which is  4.85eV. But I
am getting 5.23 eV which is closer. But I have found from a previous
discussion here (
https://www.mail-archive.com/users@lists.quantum-espresso.org/msg11410.html
)
<https://www.mail-archive.com/users@lists.quantum-espresso.org/msg11410.html>
that, the final magnetization should be 2 Bohr mag/ cell at the end of
calculation for Ti and smearing contribution of energy should be 0.0Ry.
But I am getting to get 3.83 Bohr mag/cell and a significant smearing
contribution = -0.03295688 Ry.

Anyone help me to sort this. what should I change in the input?


here is my input,

I don't really know this is the correct way to post a reply. All input is
welcome.

Thanks & Regards,
