Thanks for your recommendation and reply, mohsen and Giuseppe. So, Giuseppe,  i understand what 's your meaning is
 that the GWW and  TDDFPT in QE distribution (4.3)  can be used for different purposes, but they are both accurate in their fields. In addition, they both have the advantage of efficient computation speed becuase they used different method from the tranditional methods. Is it?

Thanks again.

And, practically speaking, you can obtain corrected (i.e., quasiparticle)
eigenvalues by using GWW, and absorption spectra by using turbo_lanczos, that
is, the GW and TDDFPT current implementations that you find embedded into the
QE (4.3) distribution. Within the above limitations, the computational cost
of both methods can be considered rather low.
