Noncollinear magnetism & RPA

#1 Post by rolando_saniz1 » Thu Jun 24, 2021 12:02 pm

Dear VASP team,

Is it possible to run RPA total energy calculations in combination with LNONCOLLINEAR = .TRUE. ? Also, is geometry optimization possible with these settings?

Thanks for your time!
Rolando

That depends the older implementation ALGO=RPA should be compatible with noncollinear calculations. The newer and faster ALGO=RPAR is not ported, yet.
