Dear all,

I used the Bader code to analyze results obtained on vanadium oxides with VASP, with PAW pseudos and LSDA calculations.

Using the correct keyword, I was able to analyze the charge density file obtained from the addition of AECARR0 and AECCAR2 and the results looked fine.

Then, I did the same thing but using a LSDA+U calculation and I got a strange thing: the total number of electrons is larger than the formal one !

In my system, I have 22 oxygen, 8 vanadium and 4 copper atoms which makes a total of 476 electrons. With the LSDA calculation, this is the number given in the ACF.dat file. However with the +U calculation, I obtain a total of 478 electrons in the ACF.dat file !!!

Does anyone know what is the reason for this ?

Thank you.
