parallelization in Yambo

Postby hlee » Mon Jun 30, 2014 11:01 am

Dear developers:

I would like to know the parallelization schemes in different runlevels.
Specifically, I wonder how the calculation is parallelized in "-p" and "-g" run levels.

Is it parallelized over k points or bands? Or both?

Dear Hyungjun,
the parallelization is on q points, or |nk> states in the -g n runlevel. If you run a gamma point only calculation it is on bands,
anyway the parallelization structure will be totally changed in the next release of the code.
