2 Overview introduction k-point meshes Smearing methods What to do in practice A. EICHLER, SAMPLING THE BRILLOUIN-ZONE Page 2

3 Introduction For many properties (e.g.: density of states, charge density, matrix elements, response functions,... ) integrals (I) over the Brillouin-zone are necessary: I ε Ω BZBZ F ε δ ε nk ε dk To evaluate computationally integrals weighted sum over special k-points Ω BZBZ ω ki k A. EICHLER, SAMPLING THE BRILLOUIN-ZONE Page 3

4 k k function f k k-points meshes - The idea of special points Chadi, Cohen, PRB 8 (973) with complete lattice symmetry introduce symmetrized plane-waves (SPW): A m k R Cm eıkr sum over symmetry-equivalent R C m Cm develope f SPW shell of lattice vectors in Fourier-series (in SPW) f f0 k m f m A m A.

A. EICHLER, SAMPLING THE BRILLOUIN-ZONE Page 5

(can break symmetry!!) A. EICHLER, SAMPLING THE BRILLOUIN-ZONE Page 8

9 Algorithm: calculate equally spaced-mesh shift the mesh if desired apply all symmetry operations of Bravaislattice to all k-points extract the irreducible k-points (IBZ) calculate the proper weighting A. EICHLER, SAMPLING THE BRILLOUIN-ZONE Page 9

10 " Smearing methods Problem: in metallic systems Brillouin-zone integrals over functions that are discontinuous at the Fermi-level. Fourier-components high dense grid is necessary. Solution: replace step function by a smoother function. Example: bandstructure energy with: Θ ω k ε nk Θ nk x ε nk µ x 0 0 x0 E ω k ε nk f nk ε nkµ! -½ 0 ½ k necessary: appropriate function f f equivalent to partial occupancies. A. EICHLER, SAMPLING THE BRILLOUIN-ZONE Page 0

22 Drawbacks: tetrahedra can break the symmetry of the Bravaislattice at least 4 k-points are necessary Γ must be included linear interpolation under- or overestimates the real curve A. EICHLER, SAMPLING THE BRILLOUIN-ZONE Page 22

23 µ Corrections by Blöchl (993) Idea: linear interpolation under- or overestimates the real curve for full-bands or insulators these errors cancel for metals: correction of quadratic errors is possible: δω kn T 40 D T ε F 4 j ε jn ε kn j D T corners (k-point) of the tetrahedront DOS for the tetrahedron T at ε F. A. EICHLER, SAMPLING THE BRILLOUIN-ZONE Page 23

24 Result: best k-point convergence for energy forces: with Blöchl corrections the new effective partial occupancies do not minimize the groundstate total energy variation of occupancies ω nk w.r.t. the ionic positions would be necessary with US-PP and PAW practically impossible A.
