Nature of problem:
Calculation of excited state properties (quasiparticles, excitons, plasmons) from first principles.
Many body perturbation theory (Dyson equation, Bethe Salpeter equation) and time-dependent density functional theory. Quasiparticle approximation. Plasmon-pole model for the dielectric screening. Plane wave basis set with norm conserving pseudopotentials.
During execution, yambo supplies estimates of the elapsed and remaining time for completion of each runlevel. Very friendly shell-based user-interface.
yambo was known as "SELF" prior to GPL release. It belongs to the suite of codes maintained and used by the European Theoretical Spectroscopy Facility (ETSF) 
The typical yambo running time can range from a few minutes to some days depending on the chosen level of approximation, and on the property and physical system under study.
