Dear Thomas,
Thank you for the answer.. Yes i must do lumo-homo.. But thomas why do we write homo-lumo always????

Regards,

>>Dear Sir,
>>As learnt from the same forum about calculating HOMO-LUMO, I have got the final result as follows:

>>Orbital No.     (in eV)
>>161     LUMO     -2.25     A
>>160     HOMO     -4.45     A

>>Hence the GAP= HOMO-LUMO = -2.2 eV

>>Now the doubt is that when I plotted the Density of states spectrum, I get to see a gap between the occupied and virtual orbitals (I have attached an image of it for your reference).. Please help me understanding this concept... Just now the calculations have shown a negative value, which in my opinion means overlapping occupied and virtual orbitals. Then how can a gap be seen? Am I going wrong in the calculations or something else. Please help..

>>Regards,
