   Rationale for mixing exact exchange with density functional approximations

or similar articles and references there ?

Usually, the parameters of the functionals (including hybrids) are well 
justified and not arbitrary numbers (even for the empirical functionals as 
In my opinion it is bad habit to change functionals in an arbitrary way.
Indeed, one may in the same way change the parameters of the PBE-GGA (or any 
other LDA or GGA functional) until a calculation fits some property of some 
haphazardly selected material,
but what do we learn from such a procedure other than nonsense ?

Betreff: Re: [Wien] About the magnetic moment of vanadium in vanadium sulphide

Hi Martin

I still confused and not convinced with my results.

It's not the band gap of NiS to take as the only criterion for the choice of 
the amount of excact exchange, but also the experimental values of magnetic 
moment. This amount allows me to get magnetic moment values close to the 
experimental values for many 3d transition metal sulphides like NiS, CrS, FeS 
and CoS.

For the use of EECE method for NiS semiconductor ; this later is not a sp 
semiconductor but  a splitting d bands semiconductor.

Best regards
