Dear all
I have a doubt in the value obtained for local magnetic moment of the atoms. The pdos.out file, towards its end shows the value of polarization on each atom of the sample which gives us the value of local magnetic moment of each atom. Many of these values are found to be negative in my calculations. What does it mean? How can a magnetic moment value be negative?
