Hi, you can try to start the mBJ calculation with the electron density from the GGA+U calculation (before executing runsp_lapw for mBJ, copy case.clm/sum/up/dn from the GGA+U calculations). Maybe the QTL-B value at the 1st iteration is smaller such that the calculation does not stop. This can happen that large QTL-B values occur only at the 1st or two first iterations and then disappear.

It shows ghost-band error in its first cycle. However, either in GGA or GGA+U the same struct file showed no error and calculation converge smoothly. I have check the case.scf2 file & it shows, :WARN : QTL-B value eq. 19.18 in Band of energy -1.72960 ATOM= 38 L= 1 Any response in this regard is greatly awaited. Thanks in advance. with regards, -- Dr. Shamik Chakrabarti Research Associate Electroceramics Lab Dept. of Metallurgical & Materials Engineering IIT Kharagpur Kharagpur 721302 INDIA
