Dear Hongsheng,
 All the four bonds in ZnO wurtzite are equivalent. So to calculate the
binding energy you have to use the below formula :
 Remember that you have to do spin-polarised calculation for O2 otherwise it
will give wrong answer. Binding energy definition is same as above. And
cohesive energy is the difference in energy between the energy of crystal
and corresponding species in isolated phases. Below are the some references.
