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

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.
