Dear Prof Peter,

Please comment of my query when you get time:This is in the queue on my
previous query regarding CH3NH3PbI3:

-ec switch is used twice instead of ec and cc (it is by mistake)
In case 2 with less k-points and normal scf criteria (-ec 0.0001 -ec 0.0005
-fc 2), I got minimized ENE than case 1. But the band gap is good from case
1.


Results:

1. GAP 1.687 eV,    FER: 0.1030934295, ENE: -339059.11079128
2. GAP  1.777 eV,   FER: 0.1004906191, ENE: -339059.12432403

You see that band gap is in the error of /+- 0.01eV.




*[* next i tried with 1. with 1000 k, div: ( 11  7 11) and "min -j
'run_lapw -p -I -NI -i 120 -ec 0.00001 -cc 0.0001 -fc 1   >> second -ec is
replaced by -cc 2. with 400 k, div: (  8  5  8)   and   min -j 'run_lapw -p
-I -NI -i 120 -ec 0.0001 -cc 0.0005 -fc 2'      *
*>> second -ec is replaced by -cc*
*and nothing happened scf immediately got exit and the structure was
already optimized]*
