Your question is based upon a common misunderstanding of minimizing forces.
You are thinking that the time to optimize depends upon the number of
positions (3*Number of Pt atoms that move) which is wrong. With PORT it
scales as the number of clusters of phonon frequencies and weakly with the
width of the clusters; with MSR1a it scales as the number of clusters of
eigenvalues of the joint electron-phonon problem and their width.

You will gain far more by generating a proper symmetric model with P-3m1
(maybe P-31m) symmetry rather than what you appear to have, a P1 structure.
This will reduce the number of uniques phonon etc modes by something like
6-12, and will be much faster and converge better.

Dear users
I want to minimize the forces for Pt111 surface. I want to restrict the
structure by minimizing the forces for first two layers and keeping the
other layers bulk-like. Please some one can help me how to change case.inM
file. Should I make some numbers equal to zero?
Looking forward

regards
Saleem
