I calculated the SCF and NSCF calculations of Silicon with Abinit, which I wrote the input file of Abinit below.Then I converted it by "a2y" command. After, in the simultaneous convergence calculations of "BndsRnXs" and "NGsBlkXs" all the gaps are the same and for an example I put one of my calculation at the attach. On the other hand the report file says the the direct gap is in k-point 19(gamma), while in the output file the gamma point is in k-point 1. Unfortunately, I do not know where the problem is.

Thank you for answering me.

Sincerely Yours,
