Many-body perturbation theory calculations using the yambo code

A paper describing the developments in the Yambo code over the last ten years has just been published in the Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter.

Ten years after the publication of the first paper[2], a new reference paper[1] describing the most recent developments of the code has just been published in the Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter. The main new features of the Yambo code range from advanced algorithms to speed up and improve the accuracy of the calculations of electronic properties (measured by photoemission experiments) and absorption spectra, to the possibility of describing magneto-optical effects or the temperature dependence of experimentally-accessible observables, and to the interpretation of time-resolved experiments. Finally, an entire section of the manuscript is dedicated to highlight the effort made in the last years, especially thanks to the MaX CoE, to improve the performance of the code in terms of parallelism to fully exploit the computational power of future pre- and “exascale” machines.
