3 Outline 1 Motivation 2 Green s functions 3 The GW Approximation 4 The BetheSalpeter Equation
4 Electronic Spectroscopy Here only two categories: 1 charged excitations: photoemission and inverse photoemission 2 neutral excitations: absorption and electron energy loss
5 Why do we have to study more than DFT? adapted from M. van Schilfgaarde et al., PRL 96 (2006).
6 MBPT vs. TDDFT: different worlds, same physics (TD)DFT based on the density response function χ: neutral excitations moves density around is efficient (simple) MBPT based on Green s functions oneparticle G: electron addition and removal  GW twoparticle L: electronhole excitation  BSE moves (quasi)particles around is intuitive (easy)

This yields G(r 1, t 1 ; r 2, t 2 ) = i X j f j (r 1 )f j (r 2 )e iε j (t 1 t 2 ) [θ(t 1 t 2 )θ(ε j µ) θ(t 2 t 1 )Θ(µ ε j )]; where: ε j = E(N + 1, j) E(N), ε j > µ E(N) E(N 1, j), ε j < µ f j (r 1 ) = N ψ (r 1) N + 1, j, ε j > µ N 1, j ψ (r 1 ) N, ε j < µ
