HF is absolutely not reliable for band gap, since it is well known
to overestimate it by a large amount.

Subject: [Wien] Gap calculated with GGA+U, mBJ and HF

Dear Wien2k users;

I calculated the gap of a material whose experimental value is unknown.

With GGA+U, mBJ potential and GW, I found that this material is semimetal (a 
slight band overlap) but with HF i found it to be semiconductor of very small 

How can I know what is the real nature of the gap of this material?

This calculation is a part of a future paper so I have to put all found  
results (GGA + U, mBJ, GW and HF) in spite of what give deferent nature or I 
have to adopt that of the HF since it
is a more accurate method?
