Title: meaning of energy cutoff value for LCAO DFT calculation
Post by: jchang on November 12, 2020, 09:35
Hi,

I have a basic question about energy cutoff.
Basically, energy cutoff defines the energy limit for plane wave basis set.
Then, what is the meaning of energy cut off if I use LCAO basis set for DFT?
Can anyone explain this?

Thanks.

Perhaps the QuantumATK Manual can explain:
