Gaussian broadening:
        Methfessel, M., and A. Paxton, 1989,
        Phys. Rev. B 40, 3616
Tetrahedron method:
       P. E. Bloechl, O. Jepsen and O. K. Andersen, 1994
        Phys. Rev. B 49, 16223
Cold Smearing:
        Marzari, N., D. Vanderbilt, A. De Vita, and M. C. Payne, 1999,
        Phys. Rev. Lett. 82, 3296.
The implementation is contained in a few simple routines in PW/ 
that should be easily readable:
   gweights.f90  (calculates gaussian weights)
   efermig.f90    (calculates Fermi energy with gaussian weights)
   w0gauss.f90  w1gauss.f90 wgauss.f90  (auxiliary functions)
   tweights.f90   (calculates weights with tetrahedra)
   efermit.f90    (calculates Fermi energy with tetrahedra)
