dbaAutomator Now Available for BerkeleyGW

A new Python code, dbaAutomator, is now available to help BerkeleyGW users working on molecular crystals verify the convergence of the fine k-point grid and perform double-Bader analysis (DBA) of exciton character. A full account is provided in Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter, https://doi.org/10.1088/1361-648X/ab699e. Briefly, to check the fine grid convergence, dbaAutomator applies a criterionContinue reading “dbaAutomator Now Available for BerkeleyGW”
