Dear Dr. Cococcioni and others,
I tried some test calculations and realized that the pressure changes
the electronic structure and thus
decreases the volume of the system. If I am interested in the band gap
of a finite system under pressure, which method of the followings is
(1) Relax the structure under the pressure, and calculate the gap using
the relaxed structure under the pressure.
(2) Relax the structure under the pressure, and calculate the gap using
the relaxed structure without the pressure.
It turns out the results from the above procedures are different.
Thank you very much.
