G=0 term in BSE kernel

Post by ramiroflores » Fri Jun 07, 2024 8:25 am


When momentum cancels, the G=0 term in the electron-hole exchange integral is eliminated for BSE calculations. However, this terminology is important for studying vertical and horizontal separation. I'm wondering if it's possible to add the term G=0?

Dear ramiroflores ,

please add your name and affiliation in your posts. This is a rule of the forum. You can do once for all by filling the signature in your user profile.

You can include the G=0 term in the exchange by setting:

Code: Select all

in the BSE input file.
