Is there an ABINIT tutorial for ferromagnetic materials?
Suppose that we have a lattice of which we want to examine ferromagnetic properties. Can abinit help? If so, how?

Hello of course Abinit can be helpful. It can calculate
1.non-magnetic system by setting:
2. Collinear Ferromagnetism:
nsppol=2, nspinor=1, nspden=2
which means spin density calculates up/down separately, and has two spin polarization, but no need of spinor for relativistic calculation.
4. non-collinear magnetism:
5. S-L coupling:
this means taking relativistic spinor wave function into account, while there is no total net spin.
