I started with AFM magnetic structure by configuring case.inst using instgen -ask. Fe has the same Muffin-tin sphere and local environment. Initially, spin up Fe has a moment of 2.5, while the spin down Fe has a moment of -2.5. The Fe Muffin-tin radius is 2.31. RKMax=7 And I used P1 symmetry. There is no warning messages during the scf run. I increased the k-mesh gradually and did not find any change in moments. The total energy does not change with k-mesh. There are four distinct types of moments, 1.98, 2.06 and -1.98 and -2.06. Could it be because of spin density wave? The magnetic configuration that I calculated involve the following magnetic configuration up up up up dn dn dn dn in a one dimensional chain. Could it be that the middle two Fe have larger moment because their nearest neighbors are all pointing in the same direction?
