# Band structure and Density of states (DOS)

Can someone explain how these two plots are related?

How are the peaks in the right are associated with the left figure?

• Peaks in the DoS occur when dispersion is near zero in a large area of $k$-space. But do you understand what Gamma, X, S, and Y mean? – Pieter May 8 '18 at 11:26
• Peaks of DoS always stands for van-Hove singularities – FangXie Apr 11 at 19:06
