We successfully proposed a newly corrected density functional theory plus Hubbard U parameter (DFT + U) based on partial core correction on the orbitals within norm-conserving lanthanide atomic pseudopotentials. A related and comprehensive investigation of native point defects in cerium oxides has also been performed as an examine by practice.
