Is there any reference in which I get more information about vc-relax?

Using vc-relax variable, all cell parameters ( distances and angles) are
optimized so one
may obtain some parameters lower than expected. Did you consider symmetry
in your job or not? this would affect the resuls.
I think that your obtained value is plausible. vc-relaxed calculation in
quantum espresso works very well and effective.
Hello PWscf users. I optimize a triclinic cell using the vc-relax, GGA
