A How possible is LDA DOS not consistent with experiment?

  1. Apr 17, 2017 #1
    Usually one would expect through \sigma=ne^2 \tao/m and DOS~1/m to argue that \sigma ~ DOS around Fermi surface. This seems to be a quite fundamental argument and should be expected to hold most of the time. For a quality check, does anybody have experience on how often LDA gives consistent DOS to match with experimental measurement?

    Thanks for the thread! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post? The more details the better.
