C. Toher et al., Phys. Rev. Mater. 1, 015401 (2017) 5 AEL: Elastic constants AFLOW-AEL is run by including the following line in the aflow.in: [AFLOW_AEL]CALC The number and size of the normal and shear strains can be set using the following lines: [AFLOW_AEL]NNORMAL_STRAINS= [AFLOW_AEL]NSHEAR_STRAINS= [AFLOW_AEL]NORMAL_STRAIN_STEP= [AFLOW_AEL]SHEAR_STRAIN_STEP= Symmetry can be used to reduce the number of independent directions by including the following lines: [AFLOW_AEL]STRAIN_SYMMETRY=ON

DFT calculations can be run for the strained structures in all of the subdirectories using the following command: aflow --multi --D C. Toher et al., Phys. Rev. Mater. 1, 015401 (2017) 6 AEL: Elastic constants Exercises: Uncomment the appropriate line to run an AEL calculation to the aflow.in file created using the Heusler prototype in the previous exercise. Use the command aflow --run --generate_aflowin_only to create the subdirectories for this AEL calculation. (Note: this will not perform any DFT calculations, which would require VASP to be installed on your computer and can be computationally expensive. To run DFT calculations, leave out the option --generate_aflowin_only.

Use the command aflow --multi --D ./ to run all subdirectories). How many subdirectories are created? Copy the aflow.in file to a new directory, and switch the option to control the use of symmetry to determine number of independent directions to OFF. Re-run the command to generate the subdirectories with the option switched on and switched off. How many subdirectories are created now? C. Toher et al., Phys. Rev. Mater. 1, 015401 (2017) 7 AGL: Debye-Grneisen model AFLOW-AGL is run by including the following line in the aflow.in: [AFLOW_AGL]CALC The number and size of the isotropic strains applied to the structures can be set using the following lines:

[AFLOW_AGL]NSTRUCTURES= [AFLOW_AGL]STRAIN_STEP= The value of the Poisson ratio used to calculate the Debye temperature can be set using the following line: [AFLOW_AGL]POISSON= AEL can be called to calculate the Poisson ratio using the following line: [AFLOW_AGL]AEL_POISSON_RATIO=ON DFT calculations can be run for the strained structures using the aflow --multi --D following command: C. Toher et al., Phys. Rev. B 90, 174107 (2014); C. Toher et al., Phys. Rev. Mater. 1, 015401 (2017) 8 AGL: Debye-Grneisen model Exercises:

1. Uncomment the appropriate line to run an AGL calculation to the aflow.in file created using the Heusler prototype in the previous exercise. 2. Change the option to use AEL to calculate the Poisson ratio to OFF, and use the command aflow --run --generate_aflowin_only to create the subdirectories for this calculation. (Note: this will not perform any DFT calculations, which would require VASP to be installed on your computer and can be computationally expensive. To run DFT calculations, leave out the option --generate_aflowin_only. Use the command aflow --multi --D ./ to run all subdirectories). How many subdirectories are created? 3. Copy the aflow.in file to a new directory, and change the option to use AEL to calculate the Poisson ratio to ON. Re-run the command to generate the subdirectories. What structures are created?

Use the command aflow --run --generate_aflowin_only to create the subdirectories for this calculation.
