- CORR_MOS_OCC: integer = 10
Usage: CORR_OCC 3
Number of occupied MOs whose energies are corrected by RI-G0W0. Counting beginning from HOMO, e.g. 3 corrected occ. MOs correspond to correction of HOMO, HOMO-1 and HOMO-2.

Usage: EPS_EV_SC_ITER 0.00005

- EV_GW_ITER: integer = 1
Usage: EV_GW_ITER 3

Fermi level for occ. orbitals: e_HOMO + FERMI_LEVEL_OFFSET; Fermi level for virt. orbitals: e_LUMO - FERMI_LEVEL_OFFSET. In case e_homo + FERMI_LEVEL_OFFSET < e_lumo - FERMI_LEVEL_OFFSET, we set Fermi level = (e_HOMO+e_LUMO)/2. For cubic-scaling GW, the Fermi level is always equal to (e_HOMO+e_LUMO)/2 regardless of FERMI_LEVEL_OFFSET. [Edit on GitHub]
- GAMMA_ONLY_SIGMA: logical = F
Usage: GAMMA TRUE
If true, the correlation self-energy is only computed at the Gamma point. The Gamma point itself is obtained by averaging over all kpoints of the DFT mesh. [Edit on GitHub]
- IC_CORR_LIST: real = -2.72113839E+001 [eV]

- IMAGE_CHARGE_MODEL: logical = F
Usage: IC TRUE
If true, an image charge model is applied to mimic the renormalization of electronic levels of a molecule at a metallic surface. For this calculation, the molecule has to be reflected on the desired xy image plane. The coordinates of the reflected molecule have to be added to the coord file as ghost atoms. For the ghost atoms, identical basis sets the normal atoms have to be used. [Edit on GitHub]
- KPOINTS_SELF_ENERGY: integer = 0 0 0
Keyword can be repeated.
Usage: KPOINTS nx ny nz
Specify number of k-points for the k-point grid of the self-energy. Internally, a Monkhorst-Pack grid is used. A dense k-point grid may be necessary to compute an accurate density of state from GW. Large self-energy k-meshes do not cost much more computation time. [Edit on GitHub]
- NPARAM_PADE: integer = 16
Usage: NPARAM_PADE 16
Number of parameters for the Pade approximation when using the latter for the analytic continuation of the self energy. 16 parameters (corresponding to 8 poles) are are recommended. [Edit on GitHub]
- NUMB_POLES: integer = 2
Usage: NUMB_POLES 2
Number of poles for the fitting. Usually, two poles are sufficient. [Edit on GitHub]
- OMEGA_MAX_FIT: real = 7.34996000E-001
Usage: OMEGA_MAX_FIT 0.5
Determines fitting range for the self-energy on the imaginary axis: [0, OMEGA_MAX_FIT] for virt orbitals, [-OMEGA_MAX_FIT,0] for occ orbitals. Unit: Hartree. Default: 0.734996 H = 20 eV. [Edit on GitHub]
- PERIODIC_CORRECTION: logical = F
If true, the periodic correction scheme is used employing k-points. Method is not recommended to use, use instead PERIODIC_LOW_SCALING which much more accurate than the periodic correction. [Edit on GitHub]
- PRINT_EXX: enum = FALSE
Usage: PRINT_EXX TRUE
TRUEPlease, put TRUE for Gamma only calculation to get the exchange self-energy. If ‘SIGMA_X’ and the corresponding values for the exchange-energy are written, the writing has been successful
FALSEFALSE is needed if you want to do nothing here.
READPlease, put READ for the k-point GW calculation to read the exact exchange. You have to provide an output file including the exact exchange. This file has to be named ‘exx.dat’.
SKIP_FOR_REGTESTSKIP_FOR_REGTEST is only used for the GW k-point regtest where no exchange self-energy is computed.
Print exchange self-energy minus exchange correlation potential for Gamma-only calculation (PRINT). For a GW calculation with k-points we use this output as exchange self-energy (READ). This is a temporary solution because the hybrid MPI/OMP parallelization in the HFX by Manuel Guidon conflicts with the parallelization in low-scaling GW k-points which is most efficient with maximum number of MPI tasks and minimum number of OMP threads. For HFX by M. Guidon, the density matrix is fully replicated on every MPI rank which necessitates a high number of OMP threads per MPI rank for large systems to prevent out of memory. Such a high number of OMP threads would slow down the GW calculation severely. Therefore, it was decided to temporarily divide the GW k-point calculation in a Gamma-only HF calculation with high number of OMP threads to prevent out of memory and a GW k-point calculation with 1 OMP thread per MPI rank reading the previousHF output.

- RI_SIGMA_X: logical = T
If true, the exchange self-energy is calculated approximatively with RI. If false, the Hartree-Fock implementation in CP2K is used. [Edit on GitHub]
- SC_GW0_ITER: integer = 1
Usage: SC_GW0_ITER 3
