I do not know many compounds, for which an RMT=1.2 bohr for H makes any sense (maybe LiH). Use setrmt and follow the suggestion. Usually, H spheres of CH or OH bonds should be less than 0.6 bohr. Experimental H-position are often very unreliable.

How many k-points ? Often 1 k-point is enough for 50+ atoms (at least at the beginning), in particular when you ahve an insulator.

Otherwise, follow the suggestions of L.Marks about parallelization.

Hi, all:

I have some confusions on the Rkm in calculations with 50+ atoms. In my wien2k, 
the NATMAX and NUME are set to 15000 and 1700. With the highest NE and NAT, the 
Rkmax can only be as large as 2.05, which is much lower than the suggested 
value in FAQ page of WIEN2K (the smallest atom in my case is a H atom with 
radius of 1.2). By checking the :RKM flag in case.scf, I have the following 
information:

:RKM  : MATRIX SIZE 11292LOs: 979  RKM= 2.05  WEIGHT= 1.00  PGR:

With such a matrix size, the single cycle can take as long as two and half 
hours. Although I can increase the NATMAX and NUME to raise Rkmax, the 
calculation will be way slower, which will make the optimization calculation 
almost impossible. Before making convergence test on Rkmax, can anyone tell me 
whether such a Rkmax is a reasonable value?

If any further information is needed, please let me know. Thanks in advance.

Best,
Wenhao
