Hi

the most serious problem is when the spin-polarization changes 
significantly during a simulation, e.g. at a transition state.

1) No
2) Yes
3) Don't know what you mean
4) Yes

regards

Dear CP2k developers and users,

Apparently, the reason to introduce NLCC pseudopotentials is the associated error in modeling of spin-polarized states (http://dx.doi.org/10.1063/1.4793260). Indeed, in the case of isolated atoms the error may be very significant. Therefore the following questions/notes come to mind:

1. Is there any estimation of this NC-PP-related error in the case of molecular or periodic systems?

2. The error should be less pronounced when norm conserving pseudopotentials including semicore states are used, isn't it?

3. As I know, GGA functionals may be a bad choice for prediction of ionization potentials or electron affinities. It is therefore woult be interesting to estimate the error introduced by norm-conserving pseudopotentials plus the GGA-related error.

4. So this error introduced by NC-PPs persists in the calculations of energies of spin-polarized molecules or periodic structures with meta-GGA or hybrid functionals, isn't it?

With best regards,
MP
