Dear Peter,
I tested recently and found that irrep fails mostly (>99%) for magnetic systems 
with spin-orbit interaction
(easyiest test cases are simple bcc iron, or fcc nickel)
it seems it does not correctly detect the magnetic symmetries, I have actually 
not enough time for more tests, unfortunately.

Ciao
Gerhard

Betreff: Re: [Wien] irrep error for symmorphic space group

As far as I know it happens quite often (but not always) that irrep
fails for spin-orbit calculations.

I'm pretty sure that SO symmetry has not been implemented fully into
irrep and this might be the reason for this.

Since irrep is a contributed package by Clas Persson, I cannot help you
much in this respect. All I can offer: Please send me the corresponding
struct files and I will collect them as "test cases" when I find
somebody to look in detail into this problem. But I'm not too
optimistic, since it requires quite some knowledge and lots of work, but
gives little "credit".

Regards
