Dear all,
I'm a new user of Q.E. Recently I am trying to analyze the
difference charge density plots (crystal density minus the superposed atomic
densities) for Gd5Ge4 compound. I got 2D plot via xcrysden utility. But i am
troubling to analyze the plots. By using color thermo meter what can we
conformed?. i.e if the value is negative/positive or even zero means what? 
I want to know the flow from where to where? Is it from
lower electro negativity element to higher electro negativity element? How can
we conform the type of bonding between them (ionic, covalent and metallic
bonding) from these plots? 
Any help will be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
