The volume of the reciprocal cell is inverse of the unit cell, therefore the 
number of k points is proportional to the volume... in other words, if the unit 
cell is increased then the reciprocal cell is reduced and the # of k- points 
should be reduced proportionally to give the same k-point density, and thus the 
same calculation "quality".

Asunto: [Wien] k-points of supercell

Dear users.

I am trying to calculate band structure of A2 B1-x Cx (x=0, 0.25, 0.5, 0.75) 
compounds.But for compound x=0.25, 0.5, 0.75 supercell was created. Now can i 
use different k-points for each of compound. I mean for for x=0.25, 0.5 and 
0.75 is it possible to use less k -points because they takes more time. In 
other words,can i compare the results of whole compound with each others while 
their k-points are different.

thank you.
