Maybe it is just the number of electrons in the occupied bands that are 
there may be some more "valence" bands below the energy window

you can check it from the DOS by integrating it only from the bottom of the 
energy window up to the Fermi energy

Betreff: [Wien] case.intrans file

Dear All,
I want to use the BoltzTrap to calculate the transport coefficient for
some compounds. So at first I tried to run it for the Bi2Te3 example. In
the Case.intrans, Bi2Te3.intrans, file in the third row we have to
insert the number of valence elctrons. I thought that we can get this
number from the case.inst, Bi2Te3.inst, file. But when I counted the
number of valence electrons in this file, Bi2Te3.inst , I found them
different from the number written in the Bi2Te3.intrans file that comes
with the BoltzTrap package,61 instead of 87. So my question is, how can
I get the number of valence electrons that must be inserted in the
case.intrans file for this case and hence for another cases?
Best regards
