Dear all,

I have a question about the output file 'eigenvectors' of absorption.x.

Are valence bands numbered from energetically higher bands to lower bands?
The analysis for states in summarize.out seems so.

I've been doing calculations of several physical quantities using exciton wave function and I wanted to confirm this point.
Thank you for reading.

Best regards,
Hiroki Katow

Hi Hiroki,

Yes, that's correct. The bands are counted from the fermi level.
