regarding restarting of transiesta job

Asked by nayana devaraj on 2018-05-15

Hi
I'm doing transport calculation in Transiesta using transiesta as solution method. I'm doing calculation using siesta-4.1 version. In scattering region calculation Scf cycles convergence has been achieved but again calculation is restarting as given below.

SCF Convergence by DM+H criterion
max |DM_out - DM_in| : 0.0000030659
max |H_out - H_in| (eV) : 0.0003620131
SCF cycle converged after 37 iterations

                     ***************************
                     * WELCOME TO TRANSIESTA *
                     ***************************

ts-Vha: 0.88249E+00 eV

Then job is getting terminated and .TSHS file is also not generating. What is the reason for this? How to solve this?

Thank you

Solution, don't do MD simulations with TranSiesta.

The next release 4.1-b4 should (in principle) enable MD simulations.

I am doing transport calculation. Electrode calculation I did using
solution method as diagon. When I use transiesta as solution method for the
transiesta calculation for the scattering region, after the scf
convergence it came as given below.

SCF Convergence by DM+H criterion
max |DM_out - DM_in| : 0.0000030659
max |H_out - H_in| (eV) : 0.0003620131
SCF cycle converged after 37 iterations

ts-Vha: 0.88249E+00 eV

And then the job got terminated.

When I change solution method of scattering region to diagon it ran and I
did tbtrans calculation also.

But in manual it is mentioned as '' To run TranSIESTA the solution method
must be transiesta''.

But when i use solution method as transiesta it is not working and it works
with diagon.

What is the difference between transiesta method and diagon method? Is it
necessary to use solution method as transiesta for scattering region ?

Please read my initial answer carefully!

You are most likely having:
  MD.NumCGSteps 100
in the input fdf. Set it to 0.

nayana devaraj (devarajnayana) said : #4

I have kept MD.NumCGsteps as 0 only.
Following is the MD portion in my input fdf file.

# MD variables
MD.FinalTimeStep 1
MD.TypeOfRun CG
MD.NumCGsteps 000
MD.UseSaveXV .true.

Please check whether you are running out of memory (i.e. ask your local sys-admin for these details).
