professor Paolo Giannozzi and Dear L.Harper-san


I appreciate for professor Paolo Giannozzi answer and Dear L.Harper-san 
for your question. I have same problem when I wanted to calculated 
twisted bilayer graphene there is 76 atoms is one unit cell. I just 
would like to know that after changing these value I have to compile 
just pw again or whole package.

Best Regard,
