 The definition for initial spin direction Date: 2020/04/23 15:54 Name: Chong Wang   Hi,I am wondering what is the definition for initial spin direction.The manual reads: 8: Euler angle, theta, of the magnetic field for spin magnetic moment 9: Euler angle, phi, of the magnetic field for spin magnetic moment Also, the 8th and 9th are used to generate the initial non-collinear spin charge distributionHowever, the spin direction and spin magnetic moment is opposite. Therefore, will the following line: 1 Fe 0.0 0.0 0.0 8.0 6.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 0 offinitialize 2 spin-up electrons in the +z or the -z direction?Thank you,Chong

 Re: The definition for initial spin direction ( No.1 ) Date: 2020/04/23 17:09 Name: Naoya Yamaguchi Hi,In that case, the initial spin polarization is 2 muB. And, if +z or -z is meaningless unless you consider spin-orbit interaction.You may refer to the following:http://www.openmx-square.org/forum/patio.cgi?mode=view&no=2618Regards,Naoya Yamaguchi Re: The definition for initial spin direction ( No.2 ) Date: 2020/04/24 03:36 Name: Chong Wang  Thank you.I have included the spin-orbit interaction and I want to make sure of the magnetization direction of the calculation, which is opposite of the spin direction. This matters, for example, when calculating anomalous Hall effect. The anomalous Hall conductivity changes sign if the direction of magnetization is flipped.So the question is: is the direction in the input file set for spin moment or spin?Chong Re: The definition for initial spin direction ( No.3 ) Date: 2020/04/24 06:41 Name: Naoya Yamaguchi Dear Chong,>So the question is: is the direction in the input file set for spin moment or spin?The eighth and ninth column values correspond the magnetic field that is easy to be parallel to the direction of the spin moment and antiparallel to that of the spin.Regards,Naoya Yamaguchi Re: The definition for initial spin direction ( No.4 ) Date: 2020/04/24 13:12 Name: Chi-Cheng Lee  Dear Chong,They should be spin "angular momentum". I think when OpenMX calculate magnetic moment,"-e" has been multiplied later on. But this needs to be confirmed by Professor Ozaki.Regards,Chi-Cheng Re: The definition for initial spin direction ( No.5 ) Date: 2020/04/24 13:37 Name: Chong Wang  Dear Chi-Cheng,Thank you for the information. My anomalous Hall calculations are more consistent with 8-9th columns being direction of spin angular momentum instead of spin magnetic moment.Chong
