Parameters for running large systems

Dear developer,

I am wondering if there is any parameter for the calculations of large systems. In VASP, one can use NPAR which switches from k-point
parallelization to band parallelization. What is the parameter using openmx? I am running electronic structure calculations for a system of about 1000 atoms. Any suggestion to accelerate the calculation? Thank you very much.

Best regards,

Hi,

If the unit cell size is large enough, it would be better to set keywords as follows:

scf.EigenvalueSolver cluster
scf.Kgrid 1 1 1

In this case, the eigenvalue solver is switiched to that for a real matrix case,
which is faster than the counterpart of complex matrix case.

Dear Prof. Ozaki,
Many thanks for your reply. The parameter sounds for cluster systems. Will this be working for the band structure calculations? Thank you very much.

Best regards,

Hi,

The cluster routine works for the band calculation with the gamma point, where the periodic
boundary condition is properly considered.
