[Wannier] plot bandstructure

Dear Tommaso,

When plotting a band structure you need to specify the path in the Brillouin zone along which to plot it. This is done with the “kpoint_path” input parameter block (see the user guide for more details). In the input file for this particular example with silicon, there should be a block of parameters for specifying the path and which is probably commented out. If you uncomment these lines then it should work.

Best wishes,

Dear all W. users,
my name is Tommaso Francese and i’m beginner in Wannier90 computational approach. So, it might be a stupid question, but when i try to follow the http://www.wannier.org/cecam07/tutorial_cecam.pdf, i’m able to do the first part (Silicon Valence Bands), until the XcrysDen file generation; but the next (Valence + Conduction State), following the tutorial fails, and the silicon.werr warns me as follow:

 Wannier90: Execution started on 23Jul2014 at 19:08:27
 A bandstructure plot has been requested but there is no kpoint_path block

Can you help me?

I added the two strings as suggested in the tutorial, but it doesn’t work.

Thanks in advance for every tips,
