Training seminars "VASP best practices", in May and June 2019

Weine Olovsson (NSC) will give a training seminar (the same) on three different occasions, about how to run VASP efficiently on supercomputers. Case studies will be shown with examples from Beskow and Tetralith. The seminar will consider parallel efficiency and memory usage for different calculations, including influential settings such as NPAR, NCORE, NSIM and KPAR.

The last part of the seminar will be for questions, problems and general discussion.


The presentation is found here for the PDC, Uppsala and Linköping seminars. Link to Peter Larsson's GaAsBi benchmark files. Used with PBE POTCARs Ga, As and Bi_d.
