metal ions in cp2k

Dear Li,

there are Mulliken and Hirshfeld population analyses in CP2K, which provide 
partial charges on atoms. 
To keep charges separated you need a large simulation cell. Alternatively, 
you may consider a charged cell (no counter ions). This is simpler to do, 
although, the large cell is even more a must.
