Re: Calculating probability exciton is in a specific region

Dear Alan,
actually, it is not very clear to me what your doubts are.
In presence of SO coupling your valence and condition wfs are represented with 2-components spinor.
You can still fix (o integrate) an hole in the valence wfs, and the total excitonic wave function in this case is obtained by summing up the two components.

Again, it is possible I have misinterpreted your question.
Best,
Daniele

Dear Daniele

Apologies, I am probably not making myself clear (or getting confused!).

For example, if the two conduction band spinor components are the opposite of each other (i.e. +A(r) and -A(r)), then am I right in saying that there would be a cancellation in the calculation where the hole is fixed in some position?

All the best,

Alan

Dear Alan,
I would say only if the two components of the valence bands are the same.

Daniele

Dear Daniele

I hope you're doing well. Could I ask what the input line should be used to generate the static dielectric screening for a BSE calculation in yambo 5? I tried '-X s' but am receiving some MPI errors, so want to double check I'm using the code properly.

With best wishes,

Alan

Dear Alan,
yes, that's the correct option. MPI error sounds strange, you should launch the input generation in serial mode, or using "mpirun -n 1" or alike.

Daniele

Dear Alan,

just an additional comment, try to the option -nompi
when you generate the input
