#Definition of the atom types
ntypat 1 # There is only one type of atom
znucl 14 # The keyword "znucl" refers to the atomic number of the
# possible type(s) of atom. The pseudopotential(s)
# mentioned in the "files" file must correspond
# to the type(s) of atom. Here, the only type is Silicon.
#Definition of the atoms
natom 2 # There are two atoms
typat 1 1 # They both are of type 1, that is, Silicon.

# will follow, one triplet of number for each atom

# This value is way too large for most realistic studies of materials
diemac 12.0 # Although this is not mandatory, it is worth to

# function used as the standard preconditioner
# is described in the "dielng" input variable section.
# Here, we follow the prescription for bulk silicon.
