-7. For density ​of states ​calculation, ​we need dense k-grid. Therefore, do the non-self-consistent calculation using the input file "​nscf.in"​ and prefix = '​./​mol'​.(Please do not change the k-grid in nscf.in)+ 
 +**Non-Self-Consistent Field (NSCF) calculation:​** 
 + 
 +In non-self-consistent calculation,​ the potential is constructed from some “input” charge density and remains fixedCalculation of DOS can be done in two ways: 
 + 
 +a) For finite geometries (e.g. molecules), where a single k-point (centre ​of BZ) is sufficient, the simple way is to perform self-consistent ​calculation ​and then DOS calculation. 
 + 
 +b) For periodic geometriesa high quality DOS might require very fine meshes and for large cells one might need many k-points (depending on the system). Therefore, to save the computational time it is a good idea to calculate the self-consistent charge density with few k-points and then non-self-consistent calculation using fixed self-consistent charge density.

 +7. For density of states calculation, do the non-self-consistent calculation using the input file "​nscf.in" ​(change the k-grid KX KY KZ) and prefix = '​./​mol'​.

 9. For band structure calculation,​ use the input file '​bands.in'​ and the ground-state density obtained from the '​scf'​ run (prefix = '​./​scf-mol'​). The BZ for graphene is shown in figure below. The points Γ, K and M are called the zone centre, the corner and the centre of the edge respectively. The green lines show the borders of the irreducible BZ along which the band extrema occurs. Therefore, we move along these lines to get the energy that an electron can have within the solid. Now the k-grid is replaced with a list of high-symmetry points along Γ-M-K-Γ directions. You can run the kpoints program and get a list of kpoints along the high-symmetry lines. For this you need to compile the kpoints.c program using gcc compiler 9.
