We report an efficient implementation of renormalized second-order single-particle energies for periodic systems in an all-electron numeric atomic orbital framework. Starting from second-order perturbation theory, which is single-electron self-interaction free as a virtue of the first-order and second-order exchange diagrams, we use the Dyson equation to sum up infinite number of diagrams [1,2]. In our implementation we use Ewald summation for the long-range part of the Coulomb interaction. This results in an integrable singularity in k-space, which has to be carefully evaluated in order to ensure proper convergence with k-point mesh density. For this purpose we develop an approach based on a generalization of the Gygi-Baldereschi method. The dependence on the starting point of the perturbation theory is examined. The new approach shows a competitive or even superior performance for the description of band-energies compared to the current state-of-the-art methods such as hybrid functionals and G0W0 approximation. Thus, with a good starting point this method becomes a powerful tool for the prediction of band energies for a variety of materials.
