All right. I don't think it is a good idea to spam the mailing list with this, so let me continue the discussion privately. If anyone else's interested, please let me know and I will add him/her to the conversation.

The last thing to mention in an email addressed to the whole mailing list could be that the calculation I sent included both inter and intraband contributions and the latter were calculated using the plasma frequency (obtained from WIEN2k) and DC conductivity which allows the determination of the relaxation time. To me, this is the only "simple way" to proceed, the obvious shortcoming being the assumption that there's a single relaxation time for all bands involved in transport. This assumption is, to my belief, utterly unjustified and I'd like to improve on this someday. (Possibly, not for Cu but for some more interesting material.)

If anyone has any thoughts on these (relaxation times in metallic systems) and is willing to share them, I'd appreciate to know.

Dear KarelThanks sir for the comment, yes sir sure mostly I am working on
the optic sides, it will be great if share your comments on this. But i will
also want to know about the electronic structure, if possible.

      Dear Sikander,
      it is not clear in what respect you are trying to compare WIEN2k
      experiments.  Let me add to what Stefaan sent you another
      quantity: optical absorption. Attached is an example of the
      calculated imaginary part of epsilon to be compared with
      experimental data shown in Fig. 1 of PRB 11, 1315. The agreement
      is, to my taste, satisfactory but there are some clear
      differences too. If you are interested in this, I'd be happy to
