VASP requires four input files in order to execute. Create the following files and place them in a work directory:
- INCAR - Central input file that directs what computations are performed.
- POSCAR - File containing geometry information.
- KPOINTS - Generates and directs which k-points are used.
- POTCAR - Pseudopotentials and information about the atoms (mass, valence, etc.).
Sample input files are available to run a test job. More example files can be acquired from VASP's wiki, which may be more up to date. More specific information about VASP input files can be found in the User Guide.
