K-path symmetry

Hi Exciting Community,

I am using Materialscloud tool to find the high symmetry K-path of a crystal[1]. While using the utility, it shows a k-path time reversal symmetry note[2]. While using Exciting to find the band structure, do I have to give the reversal K-path as well or Exciting take cares of it?

Thank you.


Note on time reversal: The second half of the path is required only if the system does not have time-reversal symmetry

Hi Jatin,

As far as I know there is no automatic k-path selection in exciting, so you would need to specify the reversal k-path too (but clearly only for systems where time-reversal symmetry is broken).
