Hello Gabriele,
Thank you for your response and advices.
I used version 4.2.1
the actual (final) input contains instructions:
for magnetization along z-direction
starting_magnetization(1) = 0.1,
starting_magnetization(2) = 0.4,
noncolin = .true. ,
angle1(1) = 0,
angle1(2) = 0,
angle2(1) = 0,
angle2(2) = 0,
lspinorb = .true. ,
constrained_magnetization = 'atomic direction' ,
lambda = 0.3,
nosym = .true.,
and magnetization perpendicular to z-direction
starting_magnetization(1) = 0.1,
starting_magnetization(2) = 0.4,
noncolin = .true. ,
angle1(1) = 90,
angle1(2) = 90,
angle2(1) = 0,
angle2(2) = 0,
lspinorb = .true. ,
constrained_magnetization = 'atomic direction' ,
lambda = 0.3,
nosym = .true.,
the resulting energies looks reasonable and convergence is really fast.
Thank you for advice with degauss value. I'll check dependence from it.
Best,
German
