(2) Calculations of the band dispersion in the fcc structure, where the non-spin polarized collinear calculation with the lattice constant of 2.87 Ang. was performed using B_PBE11.vps, B7.0-s2p2d1, and B7.0-s3p3d2, and the origin of the energy is taken to be the Fermi level. The input file used for the OpenMX calculations can be found at Bfcc-Band.dat . For comparison the result by the Wien2k code is also shown, where the calculation was performed by default setting in the Ver. 10.1 of Wien2k except for the use of R_{MT} x K_{MAX} of 12.
