Strongly correlated electronic systems are playground for multiple energy scales. Novel complex phases emerge here as temperature, pressure, chemical composition and doping are tuned. The complexity further intensifies when their bulk, monolayers, and interfaces behave completely disparately. However, identifying which degree of freedom drives what phase is difficult due to such interplay of several degrees of freedom. There are several advanced experimental methods that attempt to probe one or the other degrees of freedom to answer this enigmatic question. In the same spirit, theoretically it is possible to disentangle these degrees of freedom by computing susceptibilities in different channels. But before that it is mandatory that we have a very high level ab-initio theory that gets the single particle description right. With our recently developed three-tier ab-initio QSGW+DMFT+BSE technique we gain insights into the single and two-particle spectral properties of some such very complex and highly interesting correlated electron systems like never before. However, the prediction and analysis of novel symmetry broken phases by computing susceptibilities have been significantly hampered till this point, due to limited computational resources.
