For this purpose the hybrid func- tionals PBE0, HSE06 and LC-xPBE, that are all derived from the GGA functional PBE, have been tested. Best results for the fundamental band gap and the relative phase stability of the re-parameterized func- tionals were obtained for 10% Fock exchange in PBE0, 20% Fock exchange in LC-xPBE and 12:5% Fock exchange in
