# AMIN

AMIN = [real]
Default: AMIN = min(0.1,AMIX,AMIX_MAG

Description: AMIN specifies the minimal mixing parameter in Kerker's[1] initial approximation to the charge dielectric function used in the Broyden[2][3]/Pulay[4] mixing scheme (IMIX=4, INIMIX=1).

Kerker's[1] initial approximation for the charge dielectric function is given by

${\displaystyle A\times \min \left({\frac {G^{2}}{G^{2}+B^{2}}},A_{{{\rm {min}}}}\right)}$

where ${\displaystyle A}$=AMIX, ${\displaystyle B}$=BMIX, and ${\displaystyle A_{{{\rm {min}}}}}$=AMIN.
