Problem with Atomic Energies at at
Wed Jan 24 04:57:53 UTC 2018


I am trying to calculate the atomic energies using the following properties 


within the FORCE_EVAL section. In the output file, the energies were 
printed, but immediately after that it showed an error:

 *   ___

I have tried two systems, an SCF calculation of bulk Si with 8 atoms and a 
geometry relaxation of H2O molecule, both of which were copied from the 
2016 cp2k summer exercises, in multiple versions of CP2K, 2.6, 4.1 and 5.1, 
and on multiple machines, and the problem remained. 

In both systems, the atomic energies did not sum up to the total potential 
energies, for example, the following lines were printed right before the 
above error message:
 Potential energy (Atomic):                                   
 Potential energy (Total) :                                   
 Difference               :                                     

I suspect that there was some cross checking within the program that found 
the discrepancies and stopped the program from proceeding. 

My question is, what should I do with CP2K to obtain these atomic energies? 
I am still quite new to CP2K and would really want to get this problem
