Check Topological Magnetic Mat.
Given a file that contain the eigenvalues at each maximal k-vec of a magnetic space group, the program gives the set of irreducible co-representations at each maximal k-vec. Then, using the compatibility relations and the set of Elementary Band Representations (EBRs), it checks whether the set of bands can be expressed as linear combinations of EBRs. This (self-explanatory) file shows the format of the file to be uploaded in the menu on the right:


You can download examples of input files here:

Topological phase (NLC): ErVO3
Topological phase (SEBR): Nd2CuO4
Enforced Semimetal (ES): U3As4
Enforced Semimetal with degeneracy at Fermi level (ESFD): Tl5Fe8Se10
Trivial insulator (LCEBR): LiFeP2O7
You can generate the "trace.txt" file in your own computer using VASP and this program (fortran).
