GW: a New Topical Issue of EPJ B

The GW method is emerging as a conceptual and computational platform for
developing increasingly more accurate descriptions of electronic
excitations. EPJ B - Condensed Matter and Complex Systems is dedicating a topical issue on Challenges and Solutions in GW Calculations for Complex Systems.

Guest editors Feliciano Giustino, Paolo Umari and Angel Rubio hope that this issue will provide an exciting perspective on the state-of-the-art in this fascinating research area, and encourage new developments in view of addressing the widest range of materials. Amongst the authors, ETSF members are highlighted in bold.
