Dear Prof. Marks,

I believe I am having to understand about the mentioned  points:


1) Why is your number for the band gap "wrong", whereas what someone else
calculated with HSE is "right"?

Ans: Maybe you want to ask me why the band gap from my calculations should
be fine instead of HSE. If so, then I shall mention that hybrid
calculations are already a well know approach to predict the band gap of
inorganic systems.

2) What is the purpose of optimizing internal and cell parameters?

Ans: To get the minimum forces on the system and by doing total
optimization the system would be in the most stable ground state and can
give accurate properties if the most suitable approach is applied!!


3) Are the cell and internal parameters of PBEsol the same as what they
should be with mBJ? What does "should be" mean here?

Ans: Yes, structure file is same for PBESol and mBJ. According to me you
wanted to ask me whether I have applied any changes in mBJ calculation,
like relaxation (which is not possible and I did not apply).
I just did PBESol scf >> save_lapw case_scf>>> one scf cycle>> save_lapw
mbjx_grr >>> spacified the mBJ approach and finally mBJ scf.

Bhamu

No, I said the calculated gal is ~0.3eV less then the reported gap: HSE.


I tested this on more than 10 systems and in each case obsessed this band
gap discrepancy.
