Dear dr . Transfer 

Also, if I need to do optimize with Hubbard u, should I execute

 runsp_lapw -p   - orb -dm -cc 0.001 - ec 0.0001

Sorry for many questions. But I culdnt find the correct answer anywhere.

Thank you

 When you execute run(sp)_lapw, the lattice
 parameters don't change.
 To optimize the
 lattice parameters you need first to execute "x
 which generates a series of
 struct files. Then execute optimize.job which
 will run SCF for each of one the struct
 Look at the 2nd
 exercise here:

 But in all the cycles lattice parameter did not change.
