Dear users,

Regarding some calculations for semiconductors, the calculations are not
converged and we need to consider smearing.
In that case, in the output file, it prints the Fermi energy instead of
highest occupied and lowest unoccupied energy.
How should we interpret the result?
On the other hand, when calculating the electronic density of states, the
integrated DoS doesn't reach to the total number of valance electrons
exactly near the Fermi energy.
In that case, how should we consider the Fermi energy and obtain the band

Thanks in advance.
