  author={Ivan Leonov},
We compute the electronic structure, spin and charge state of Fe ions, and structural phase stability of paramagnetic CaFeO3 under pressure using a fully self-consistent in charge density DFT+dynamical mean-field theory method. We show that at ambient pressure CaFeO3 is a negative charge-transfer insulator characterized by strong localization of the Fe 3d electrons. It crystallizes in the monoclinic P21/n crystal structure with a cooperative breathing mode distortion of the lattice. While the…
