From my understanding, for long range interatomic interactions, not only the interactions of the unit cell with their nearest neighbors should be considered, other atoms around the unit cell should be taken into account as well. So when I tried to calculate the dispersion relation with classical potentials, I included the interactions to the 5th nearest neighbors. However the dynamical matrix is not Hermitian, i.e. some eigenvalues are negative numbers. Is it because the number of neighbors is not enough or is there any other way to calculate the dispersion relation when long range interactions are involved? Thanks.
