Dear all,

I am phonon dispersion for teragonal system to check insulator to metal
transition. At gamma point frequencies,  I did not get any imaginary
frequencies in asr.out file, where as in complete phonon dispersion I got
imaginary frequencies and sudden shifts in high symmetry directions. I am
bit confused and croos check my i/p. Below I attached the i/p and o/p of

AB2.asr.out :
     Reading Dynamical Matrix from file AB2.dynG
     ...Force constants read
     ...epsilon and Z* read
     A direction for q was not specified:TO-LO splitting will be absent

     Polarizability (A^3 units)
     multiply by 0.273227 for Clausius-Mossotti correction

phonons at Full
   nq1=4, nq2=4, nq3=4

My lattice parameters are a= 3.4 and c=6.1 \AA . Pls correct me If I did
any wrong...

One more doubt is.. How to include LO-TO splitting in Complete phonon
dispersion???? I am doing Insulator to metal transition, and metal did not
contains LO-TO splitting. So, I  check LO-TO changes at transition pressure
and the same I want to compare with ambient pressure .

Looking for favorable reply and Thanks in advance...
