gap's problem

Concerns issues with computing quasiparticle corrections to the DFT eigenvalues - i.e., the self-energy within the GW approximation (-g n), or considering the Hartree-Fock exchange only (-x)

Dear Daniele,

Here are the files.
Let me know if i still need to send any additional file. I did not send other files because they are too heavy.

Dear Nagura,
actually if you see the QE output, the system is seen as a metal: fractional occupation charge in bands 20-22 for several k points:
Code: Select all
 k =-0.5366-0.5374-0.5358 (  5912 PWs)   bands (ev):
    occupation numbers
     1.0000   1.0000   1.0000   1.0000   1.0000   1.0000   1.0000   1.0000
     1.0000   1.0000   1.0000   1.0000   1.0000   1.0000   1.0000   1.0000
     1.0000   1.0000   1.0000   0.0817   0.0683   0.0085   0.0000   0.0000

so it seems yambo is correctly assigning a metal character.
If you know that the system should be not, inspect carefully your quantum espresso input (smearing value etc..).
