Despite its simplicity, the interacting homogeneous electron gas (HEG) is a paradigmatic test case in the study of the electronic structure of condensed matter. Beside being a model for valence electrons in simple metals, it also provides the basic ingredients for key electronic-structure theories. Here, we propose to study it with many-body perturbation theory (MBPT) using one shot, partial self-consistent, and full self-consistent GW, and analyze the description of its spectral function. For this, a novel numerical implementation of MBPT for the 3D non-relativistic HEG has been developed, with a special focus on the treatment of the full-frequency dependence of the Green’s function and self-energies. Results for a broad range of densities (going from rs from 1 to 10) are presented with particular attention to the calculated density-of-states and the spectral potential.
