Quickstep Density Functional Theory

Description

Ab-initio molecular dynamics of liquid water using the Born-Oppenheimer approach, using Quickstep DFT. Production quality settings for the basis sets (TZV2P) and the planewave cutoff (280 Ry) are chosen, and the Local Density Approximation (LDA) is used for the calculation of the Exchange-Correlation energy. The configurations were generated by classical equilibration, and the initial guess of the electronic density is made based on Atomic Orbitals.
