Post Nonphysical values of self-energy

I thought the reason might be insufficient memory but it turned out not to be the case. In past did similar calculations on other systems and it worked fine without any nonphysical results. The Wannier spread is around 2.3 Ang^2. I plotted the interpolated phonon band structure (with SOC) and it looks fine as well.

I don't understand the reason of these nonphysical values.
Could you please give some suggestions? what went wrong?

Thank you very much in advance.

Best wishes,

Post Re: Nonphysical values of self-energy
Hello dinesh169,

The only change you made is the fine grids ?
It seems something else changed. Indeed if I look at the eigen-energies at \Gamma they should be exactly the same (the eigen-energies do not depend on the q-point grid and \Gamma-point is contained in both grids).
I can see E( 22 )= 2.4860 eV for the 100 grid and E( 22 )= 2.4856 eV

Therefore something else must be going on.
Are both grid "restart" from reading the epmatwp file ?

Best wishes,
Samuel

Post Re: Nonphysical values of self-energy
Hello Samuel,

Thank you very much fro your reply.

The only difference in both the input files are fine k/q grids. I did more check to have some insight of the error.

I noticed, with verbosity =3, the linewidth in epw.out and sum of linewidth over \phonon_mode in linewidth,elself are different.

As you can see below

What is the maximum number of bands that can be included in the calculations. I am using 22 bands, its it high for the code. When i reduce the bands and energy window then the wannierization goes bad.
Do you think the error happen while summing the linewidth? How can it be avoided?

####### restart issue#########
For temperature 0K calculations finish in one run but for 300K I have to run it twice and calculations are restated from wse2.sigma_restart1 not from wse2.epmatwp1.

Best wishes,
