Thank you Dr.Víctor Luaña and Dr Karel Vyborny
My problem is that I found two results that give different electronic
Depending on Dr. Fabien Tran response, HF overestimate the gap.
And I think GW, GGA+U and mBJ potential are better adapt to estimate the
gap and I think their results for the studied material indicates that it is
semimetal pending confirmation.
