ERROR: should be no new maxima in edge refinement

Post by vhakkim »

While running bader CHGCAR -ref CHGCAR_sum i am getting error:ERROR: should be no new maxima in edge refinement; i checked previous same error post but there is no solution how to solve it. Can somebody tell me how to sole this prob

In the previous case there was a problem with the charge density file. Make sure that it seems reasonable, for example, by visualizing it. If it looks ok, you can post it and I'll take a look at the problem.

yet all of my bader charge analysis for the surface models obtain ERROR: should be no new maxima in edge refinement. is the bader charge analysis working well with the slab model in the DFT calculation, the model having vacuum layer?

Which version did you use? I also got the same error, but when I using the older version v0.28a, bader can work. Try the old version.

Hi, graeme, I get the same error when running the bader analysis. I have attached the charge density files. Could you please help me for this problem?

There is something wrong with the AECCAR0 file. If you try to visualize it, you can see that the charge density data is not smooth. There are also significant negative values in that file.

the old version 2.7 works well with the my problem, the calculation goes smoothly.

I have also tried the old version 0.28, which works well. Then what are the differences between the current version 0.95 and the older ones in addressing charge data?

A new version is posted with a bug fix that properly treats files containing negative charge densities. Please see if v0.95a works properly. Thanks!

It seems that the new version of 0.95a still has the same problem.

I don't see any errors analyzing the CHGCAR_sum = AECCAR0 + AECCAR2 from the files that you provided. See the output below. Note that I do not have your CHGCAR so I don't have the valence charge. This will not, however, effect the analysis; it will just change the integration values over the valence rather than the total charge.
