Yambo is an ab-initio code for calculating quasiparticle energies and optical
properties of electronic systems within the framework of many-body perturbation
theory and time-dependent density functional theory. Quasiparticle energies are
calculated within the G W approximation for the self-energy. Optical properties
are evaluated either by solving the Betheâ€“Salpeter equation or by using the
adiabatic local density approximation. Yambo is a plane-wave code that, although
particularly suited for calculations of periodic bulk systems, has been applied
to a large variety of physical systems. Yambo relies on efficient numerical
techniques devised to treat systems with reduced dimensionality, or with a large
number of degrees of freedom. The code has a user-friendly command-line based
interface, flexible I/O procedures and is interfaced to several publicly available
density functional ground-state codes.
