Dear Wien2k and Boltztrap users and Developers
Greetings from me. Plz help me.
I am working with Boltztrap using Wien2k.
I used following steps
1. SCF calculations have been converged with wien2k
2. I copied case.struct and fro wien2k working directory of
compound and pest into GdFe2 directory in Bolztrap test directory.
2. Further, I copied x_trans and Boltztrap file along with case.intrans
into same GdFe2 directory. consist following

                                                 I have made calculations
for GdFe2 as example                                                   and
got the results as given below

4. I edited Fermi energy and number of electrons in this file corresponding
to GdFe2 available in case.scf file in wien2k working directory
5. using commands x_trans BoltzTrap and BoltzTrap BoltzTrap.def
    I got the results in case.trace file.

But problem is that As I got electrical conductivity and plot with
temperature it is increasing with temperature while it should be decrease
with increasing the temperature as GdFe2 have metallic character.
Should i need change other values in case.intrans file or there is other
way to see the results present case.trace
Plz help in where i am doing mistake.
 Thanks in advance

Kind regard
