In science:

For ZnO and InN, the d -band binding energies increase with respect to the LDA, approaching the experimental values.
Quasiparticle band structure based on a generalized Kohn-Sham scheme
In the case of InN and ZnO they refer to the wurtzite polytype.

FIG. 1: (Color online) First-order quasiparticle shifts Dll versus gKS eigenvalues for InN (a) and ZnO (b).
Quasiparticle band structure based on a generalized Kohn-Sham scheme
Turning now to a detailed discussion of the InN results [Fig. 1(a)], we note that the QP shifts for the upper valence bands and the conduction bands show a rather weak dispersion with the eigenstate for all gKS schemes.
Quasiparticle band structure based on a generalized Kohn-Sham scheme
For ZnO [Fig. 1(b)] similar observations can be made, however, as discussed before, the smaller binding energy of the Zn 3d states causes a stronger hybridization of p and d states than in InN.
Quasiparticle band structure based on a generalized Kohn-Sham scheme
For InN there is another important fact to note.
Quasiparticle band structure based on a generalized Kohn-Sham scheme
Figure 1 shows the calculated QP shifts [Eq. (3)] for InN and ZnO plotted versus the gKS eigenvalues.
Quasiparticle band structure based on a generalized Kohn-Sham scheme
However, it is necessary to note that the experimental values for InN and ZnO correspond to the wurtzite instead of the zincblende polytype used in the calculations.
Quasiparticle band structure based on a generalized Kohn-Sham scheme
TABLE III: Direct (d) and indirect (i) G0W0 QP band gaps, average d -band binding energies and static electronic macroscopic dielectric constants e¥ calculated upon the respective gKS band structures for Si, ZnO, and InN.
Quasiparticle band structure based on a generalized Kohn-Sham scheme
For InN and ZnO, the trends just discussed for Si still hold, but the actual bene fit of a gKS starting point becomes more apparent.
Quasiparticle band structure based on a generalized Kohn-Sham scheme
In contrast to the LDA, the gKS starting points reproduce the correct ordering of gap states for InN and yield more meaningful dielectric constants in the case of HSE03 and, with some restrictions, in the case of sX.
Quasiparticle band structure based on a generalized Kohn-Sham scheme
Similar to the gaps, the QP d -band binding energies calculated for InN and ZnO show a much weaker variation with the starting XC functional than the original gKS one-electron d -band energies.
Quasiparticle band structure based on a generalized Kohn-Sham scheme
The agreement of the calculated energies with experimental values (Table III) is good for InN.
