maybe there is too much choice, but the Hamiltonian matrix and
the Green's function are also computed in the Wannier code
(www.wannier.org), interfaced with PWSCF; both in Wannier90 and in
WanT these are calculated in a basis of maximally-localized Wannier
Quoting Axel Kohlmeyer <akohlmey at cmm.chem.upenn.edu>:
