Dear Dr. Togo, You may remember that you helped me obtaining irreducible representations for KMnAg3C6N6. Science Vol. 319, p794 (2008) is an article on related substance Ag3CoC6N6. Fig4 of this paper provides partial vibrational free energy for Ag, Co and CN. (The discussion is on the 3rd column, 2nd para.) Assuming that they really mean the partial vibrational free energy, I would like to do similar analysis for our study. Ponopy provides partial DOS. I used following option to plot using pdosplot: pdosplot i '1 2 3, 4 5 6, 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15, 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51' o 'pdos.pdf' partial_dos.dat. However, it is not clear how to obtain partial vibrational free energy. Please help me with this. Great regards, Ravi

Hi, I spent some time to understand it. But unfortunately, I could not see the mathematical definition and physical concept of the mean partial phonon frequencies. I will consider the implementation in phonopy if you let me understand it.

Hi, Could you describe the formulation? In addition, as far as I read the paper, they don't provide partial vibrational free energy, but the mean partial phonon frequencies. As I wrote, I can't figure out the physical meaning of both of partial vibrational free energy and mean partial phonon frequencies. Phonon is quantized as a collective motion and the quantized energies are used to calculate thermal properties. How can we divide thermal properites into atomic fractions?

I need mathematical expression to discuss. How do you divide Helmholtz free energy into atoms? The formula is shown here. http://phonopy.sourceforge.net/theory.html#helmholtzfreeenergy In the case of phonon (internal) energy, http://phonopy.sourceforge.net/theory.html#harmonicphononenergy it would be possible to divide using eigenvectors systematically, because of the linear function form to omega.
