Hi,
I am new to wannier90. I am now trying to repeat the results of bulk Si by using VASP+wannier. I recompiled vasp with wannier library, and then performed VASP with a wannier.win which is similar with your example03.
Here are the band structures I got. The black lines are from regular DFT calculation with PBE potential, the blue triangles are from wannier90_band.dat with a frozen energy window, and the green lines are from wannier90 with no dis_froz_max specified and use_bloch_states = true. I thought that the latter, the green lines, should be similar with the "unconstrained projection" case in your review article (Rev. Mod. Phys, 2012, blue lines in fig.5). But it seems that the green lines are even in a better agreement with the PBE bands. So my first question is, what's problem?
Here is the wannier90.win file I used:
num_wann=8
num_bands=16
Begin Projections
Si:sp3
End Projections
dis_win_max = 17.0d0
dis_froz_max= 6.4d0
dis_num_iter=1000
num_iter = 50
num_print_cycles = 10
guiding_centres=true
wannier_plot = true
# Bandstructure plot
restart = plot
fermi_energy = 6.1340
fermi_surface_plot = true
#wvfn_formatted = .true.
bands_plot = true

-0.2500000 0.2500000 -0.5000000
end kpoints
And another one without 'dis_froz_max' is:
num_wann = 8 ! set to NBANDS by VASP
num_bands = 8
use_bloch_phases = T
num_iter = 1000
num_print_cycles = 10
iprint = 2
......
The second question is, I also tried to change the value of "dis_froz_max", from 9.0 to 3.0, but seems that the band was changed only slightly. Is this correct?
