Error in yambo reading files

Dear all,

I am new to Yambo. I have gone through the tutorial on calculating the quasi-particle band structure of a bulk h-BN. I am trying to calculate the quasi-particle band structure of monolayer antimony (antimonene). I have set-up the input file (see attachment). However when I run it, I obtained the following error:

[ERROR] STOP signal received while in :[06.01] G0W0 (W PPA)

[ERROR]EMPTY WF index b:10 k:1 spin:1 ID:0

I notice that this error always appear when the upper limit of GbndRnge is more than 9.
In this case here, 9 is the total number of band when I calculated the band structure at PBE level. As far as I know, GbndRnge is one of the of the convergence parameter.

Appreciate if anyone can give me some advice on this

Thanks

This is indeed the problem, you cannot ask for more bands than ones you calculate in the ground state. The number of bands you include in the nscf calculations is the maximum number
of bands you can include GbndRnge or BndsRnXp, so it has to be large enough to get convergence in the GW calculation.

Best,
Daniele
