You'll also need to ask the code to calculate the stress tensor (in ''​FORCE_EVAL''​ section) ''​ANALYTICAL''​ly! Also define the ''​CUTOFF''​ and ''​SCALING_FACTOR''​. Start the cell optimization from small cells (''​SCALING_FACTOR 0.85''​) or large cells (''​SCALING_FACTOR 1.10''​) - do you get the same results? ​ Copy the input template to a new file and change the ''​RUN_TYPE''​ to ''​CELL_OPT''​.
