Post EPW calculation crashes at the start.
Hello,
I am doing some calculations using the EPW and got the following error in the CRASH file:

Post Re: the epw cal stops with giving any error in the output.
Hi,

At present the 2d cutoff is not implemented in EPW so this might be the cause of the crash.

Best,
Carla

Thank you so much Carla to point that out. I tried again the calculations by removing the 2D cutoff(I did not redo the phonon calculations) in scf and nscf before performing the epw calculations. But still the EPW calculation did not run. It stopped at the same point with the same CRASH error.

Regards,
Simran

Dear Simran,

You need to remove the folder ./out/SC7.save/

Then indeed redo scf.in and nscf.in without 2D cutoff and it should work.

You should not have to redo the phonon I think.

Best wishes,
Samuel

Hello,

Thank you so much for your reply. But it still doesn't work I will post my input file for you to see if something is wrong over dere. The code stops at line 203 in epw_setup.f90 and line102 in epw.f90. I have even tried with both ultrasoft and norm-conserving pseudopotentials but the error still remains. The input file is below:

Dear Simran,

1) Are the EPW tests working ? You can run them from q-e/test-suite and then do "make" there

2) Which version of QE are you using ? Is it a modified version ?

3) EPW only supports NC psp, not US.

Best wishes,
Samuel

Dear Dr. Ponce,

To answer your questions:

1) I have tried an example with keeping everything exactly the same(version, no. of procs etc) and it works.

2) I am using QE-6.2.1 and EPW version 4.3.0.

3) I did not know that, but anyway I tried with the NC pseudo.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Regards,
Simran
