VASP Input files: KPOINTS
The KPOINTS files determines the k-points setting, a sample KPOINTS file would include the following lines only:
K-Points # Comment 0 # automatic generation of k-points Monkhorst # M use Monkhorst Pack 11 11 11 # grid 11x11x11 0 0 0 # shift (usually 0 0 0)
The first line is a comment. If the second line equals zero, k-points are generated automatically using the Monkhorst-Pack's technique (first character in third line equals M). With Supplied KPOINTS file a 11X11X11 Monkhorst-Pack grid is used for the calculations. Note that strings after # sign are just to explain the purpose of the string.
