Dear Nam,

Yes, by default, only the gamma point is sampled and you need to converge
with respect to the size of your supercell.

Multiple k-points are implemented, but you might encounter difficulties
with certain methods or approaches that are not conmpatible with multiple
k-point calculations:

For an example, see this tutorial:

Yours sincerely,
Patrick Gono
