Hi

a few comments, but unfortunately no real solution to your problem

- BLYP is not easy to converge on a regular grid
- Smoothing works fine for constant volume but requires very high cutoffs
  for pressure calculations

- I'm not aware that MD with ALMO is possible

regards

Subject: [CP2K:9014] BLYP functional and smoothing

Dear cp2k users,

I'm trying to run a MD simulation with NPT_I ensemble of liquid water with BLYP XC functional and dispersion. Without XC functional smoothing there's a small energy drift, but the density is very close to well established values(~1.04). But when I added smoothing, although the conserved quantity is constant, the density then changed to a substantially value(~1.2). The only difference between the 2 runs is the second one has the smoothing section:
       &XC_GRID
         XC_SMOOTH_RHO  NN10
         XC_DERIV  SPLINE2_SMOOTH
       &END XC_GRID

I'm wondering if the smoothing I used was inappropriate. I also attached the input file with smoothing. Thanks very much for any suggestions!

Best,
Yifei
