Hi everybody.
      Sorry to post this email again cause the image in this one is bigger
and easy to see.
      I tried to plot the bandstructure for carbon nanotube(5,5), however,
the result looks strange. I have 20 carbon atoms in a unitcell, and I set
the number of bands(nbnd=80 or 48).
     nbnd=80 is out of the consideration that conduction bands+valence

    nbnd=48 is from the 20% more for metal.(here the carbon nanotube is


    The third picture is after I added no_overlap=.true. in the
bands.infile for nbnd =48.

    All the three pictures are far from the band structure in literature,
and I don't know if they are wrong.
    Can somebody give me an advice and I apprieciate it very much.
    Thank you!

    Best regards.
