Dear all,

I now doing some study on BaHfO_3 with uspp scheme.  The states
Ba 5s2 5p6 6s2, Hf 5d2 6s2 and O 2s2 2p4 were treated as valence

I also found that following paper has done some researches on BaHfO_3:


In th abstract of the above paper, the authors said:

Band structures show that BaHfO3 is a direct band gap between the occupied O 2p and unoccupied Hf d states.

I just want to know how to decide the O 2p and Hf 5d as the the occupied and the unoccupied states corresponding to the band gap?
In detail, in the above computation, the p states are comes from Ba and O simultaneously, so why can they only said the O 2p? 

Sincerely yours,
