Electronic structure of CeO2 greatly depends on initial guess of wave function in OT method

Hi, Florian,

Sorry for the misunderstanding.

I restart the calculation from the wave functions obtained from another U 
value: for example, I start the geometry optimization with U=7eV from the 
wave function obtained from U=10eV. The calculation in this way can get 
lower work function which is comparable with experimental value. Also the 
total energy is ~0.86 eV lower than the calculation with 'scf_guess' set as 
'atomic' (same U value used, U=7eV). It seems the later didn't converge to 
a global minimum.
