GW QPband

Dear all,

There was no error when I performed gw calculation, but I wondered why the corrected energy band would appear in a relatively "chaotic" state. What are the reasons for this?

I have attach the relevant results below. Figure 1/2 shows the band structure calculated with/without GW correction respectively.

Thanks in advance.
Best,
Liu

Dear Liu

probably it is not an error of the GW calculations but a problem in the interpolation.
When two bands cross each other in the GW, the interpolation could fail, because it is not able
to recognize the crossing.
My advice is to plot directly the points that you obtain from the GW without interpolation,
you should be able to recognize the bands and their path without strange behaviours.

Dear Claudio,

Thanks for your advise!

I'm not sure how to implement "plot directly without interpolation". I would appreciate it if you could explain it in detail. Thank you very much!

Best,
Liu

Dear Liu,

you can plot the calculated QP energy that are found both in the o.qp* file and in the report file.

Best,
Daniele
