Dear Dr. Arash A Mostafi,

Thank you, I will get working on those ideas.

Regards,
Soham.

Dear Soham,

There's no means by which to explicitly get the code to ask for
projections that are linear combinations of different d-orbital
projections. However, given that your system is effectively only a
two-band problem, you may be able to perform the necessary linear
you projections such as

<\psi_nk | d_1> and <\psi_nk | d_2>

whereas you would like, for example,

<\psi_nk | (d_1 \pm d_2)> = <\psi_nk | d_1> + <\psi_nk | d_2>.

You may be able to achieve the result you want by taking appropriate
linear combinations of the columns of the A_{mn} matrix that is returned
by the electronic structure code.

Regarding your second question, whilst the code does not support
Gaussian projections, it should not make too much of a difference to use
"s" orbital (l=0) projections at the locations that you want. You can
then control the narrowness using the "zona" parameter in the definition

Best wishes,

Arash
