Description: This flag sets the number of structures for electron-phonon interactions from Monte-Carlo (MC) sampling.

This feature is only available from VASP version 6.0 or higher.

For PHON_NSTRUCT=-1 the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of the dynamic matrix are written to the file DYNMATFULL.

For PHON_NSTRUCT=0 the ZG configuration[1] (one-shot) method is executed.

For PHON_NSTRUCT>0 that many MC structures are prepared.

For further usage of this tag see: Electron-phonon interactions from Monte-Carlo sampling.
