Post subject:  How to select degaussw ?

Dear all,

I am trying to calculate the electron-phonon coupling in TiSe_2 and I got the following result.

Then I'm confused about how to select correct the smearing parameter of delta function which is controlled by the tag degaussw.
I found two similar graph in the literature https://journals.aps.org/prb/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevB.95.024505

I have review some discussion about this parameter, I thought that if we increase k-mesh or q-mesh, the lambda will converge to an constant.
But in my case and the PRB case, the lambda just increase when sigma close to 0 even when we increase k&q mesh.
Why we can select 15meV or 35meV as the convergence criterion value?
Hope for any discussion about this.

Bests,
Xinbao,

HI
i have the same problem for the electron phonon coupling for an 2D metal
i got unreasonable electron phonon coupling and eliashberg spectral function for a q and k meshes 320*200*1 and 320*200*1
i had lambda = 290
