This page gives a brief explanation of the many input variables used by Yambo.
Variables apply to the standard yambo executable unless indicated otherwise.
Default values are read from the indicated database file unless stated otherwise.
Required verbosity flags are indicated where appropriate.

Units can have the following values:

  • None = no unit
  • RL = number of G-vectors
  • Energy = Ha, mHa (Hartree atomic units), Ry, mRy (Rydberg atomic units), eV, meV (electron volts), K, THz, GHz
  • Length = Bohr atomic units a.u.

Formats are described on the Format page.

EXXRLvcs (Units: RL/Energy, Format: Integer/Real)
Meaning: Number of G-vectors used in the sum of the exchange self-energy Sx.
Usage: It needs careful convergence. As it is not particularly time consuming, large values can be used to ensure convergence. Generally a large number is needed as the QP energies show a slow convergence. The calcualtion of the exchange part is rather fast.

VXCRLvcs (Units: , Format: )
Meaning:
Usage:

QPkrange (Units: None, Format: Range)
Meaning: Range of states (nk) where GW/Sx elements are calculated

Meaning: Specifies the range of bands entering in the sum over states in the correlation part of the self energy
Usage: It needs several empty states. Single quasiparticle states converges very slowly with respect GbndRnge, energy differences (e.g. gaps) behave better. See also GTermKind variable in order to speed up the convergences.This number is usually larger than the number of bands used to calculated the dielectricconstant. Single quasiparticle energies converge slowly with respect GbndRnge, energy difference behave better. You can use terminator technique to mitigate the slow dependence.

Meaning: Number of G-vectors or energy cut off in the screening (response block size)
Usage: Determines the size of the dielectric matrix in G-space. Needed for inclusion of local field effects, it should be much smaller than the number of G-vectors needed to expand the wavefunctions (FFTGvecs). It needs careful convergence, and should be converged along with BndsRnXp. Depends strongly on the system inhomogeneity. See also: BndsRnXp FFTGvecs

PPAPntXp (Units: Energy, Format: Real)Default: 1 Ha (27.2114eV)
Meaning: Plasmon pole Imaginary Energy
Usage: The self energy in the imaginary axis should be a smooth function so it should not have a strong dependence on this pole energy. Set it at an higher value of the plasmon energy (see EELS spectrum). this is the second frequency used to fit the Godby-Needs plasmon-pole model (PPM). If results depend consistently by changing this frequency, the PPM is not adequate for your calculation and it is need to gp beyond that, e.g. Real-axis.

Usage: It needs several empty states. See also GTermKind variable in order to speed up the convergences. Reduce range in order to lower memory. In metals it includes partially filled bands. See also EhEngyXd. See also: GTermKind

EnRngeXd (Units: Energy, Format: Range)
Meaning: Energy range the spectrum is calculated across.
Usage: Extremae of the energy range across which optical spectra will be computed. See also: EhEngyXd

DmRngeXd (Units: Energy, Format: Range)
Meaning: Determines the damping used across the requested spectral range.
Usage: Typically this is kept constant. If different values are used, the damping at each energy will be interpolated linearly. This can be useful when poor k-point sampling leads to large oscillations at higher energy.

ETStpsXd (Units: None, Format: Integer)
Meaning: Number of energy steps in computing X
Usage: Determines the number of steps in energy the response function/spectrum is computed for in the desired range defined by EnRngeXd. In the case of a full frequency GW the range is fixed by the occupied/empty states included in the calculation, the number of frequency requires a careful check

LongDrXd (Units: Length, Format: Vector)
Meaning: Electric field direction
Usage: Pay attention how the system is oriented when treating non 3D systems and choose a direction in the plane/axis where your system lies

FxcGRLc (Units: , Format: )
Meaning: XC-kernel size
Usage: Needs convergence study. Much less than FFTGvecs

LRC_alpha (Units: , Format: )
Meaning: LRC fitting parameter
