dear pw users
could any one tell me which method is right?
  1)relax in GGA scheme, then use the  Geometry do a GGA+U scf calculation
  2) relax in GGA+U scheme, got the Geometry, then a GGA+U scf calculation
I ask this question because i did a Geometry Optimization GGA scheme and  GGA+U (other parameters are almost the same), and i got a very pwdifferent Geometry with the two method, why does this happen?
best regards!
