It is not clear why you like to deal with core electrons (3s, 3p) as valence 
states ?

by the way, isn't it [Ar] 4s2 4p2 and you suggest something like [Ne]  3s2 3p6 
3d10 4s2 4p2

Betreff: [Wien] Promoting Ge 3s shell to valence

Dear all,

I am trying to do a calculation on a Ge compound where I would like to
promote the core 3s states of Ge (configuration [Ar] 3s2 3p2) to
semicore and hence be included in the valence states. I am hoping this
will have some convergence problems I had in the scf cycles.

However, I am not able to select an energy cutoff during lstart that
allows me to do this:

  SELECT ENERGY to separate core and valence states:
   recommended: -6.0 Ry (check how much core charge leaks out of MT-sphere)
   ALTERNATIVELY: specify charge localization (between 0.97 and 1.0) to
select core state
-12.5
   SELECT ENERGY to separate core and valence states:
   recommended: -6.0 Ry (check how much core charge leaks out of MT-sphere)
   ALTERNATIVELY: specify charge localization (between 0.97 and 1.0) to
select core state
-12.0
STOP LSTART ENDS
0.266u 0.004s 11:47.23 0.0%    0+0k 0+1384io 0pf+0w

where the energy of the states are as follows:

I found an earlier question on the mailing list where the user wished to
use a very low cutoff (~ -30 Ry) here:
http://www.mail-archive.com/wien%40zeus.theochem.tuwien.ac.at/msg05396.html.
What I am trying to do is far less extreme, I am only promoting one
shell to the valence. Why can I not do this in lstart, and is there
another way around this problem?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Best wishes,
Priyanka Seth
