Nature of problem:
Obtaining maximally-localised Wannier functions from a set of Bloch energy bands that may or may not be entangled.
In the case of entangled bands, the optimally-connected subspace of interest is determined by minimising a functional which measures the subspace dispersion across the Brillouin zone. The maximally-localised Wannier functions within this subspace are obtained by subsequent minimisation of a functional that represents the total spread of the Wannier functions in real space. For the case of isolated energy bands only the second step of the procedure is required.
Simple and user-friendly input system. Wannier functions and interpolated band structure output in a variety of file formats for visualisation.
Test cases take 1 minute
