This question comes as a follow-up to https://mattermodeling.stackexchange.com/a/2214/116; nonetheless, it is relevant on its own as well.
To designate a particular crystal structure to a random solid solution (rss, in this question) means assigning an ensemble of all possible random states of this solution with that specific crystal structure. For instance, an FCC rss has complete FCC symmetry only in its idealized theoretical random state. In contrast, in reality, any one of the randomly possible configurations of this solution will have a symmetry that is lesser than FCC.
For an rss, every atom has a different local chemical environment that means they each would have a different electronic density of states. Given that, does a partial density of states (PDoS) matter?
Let's say for an 8 atom structure of an AB type rss, PDoS for each of the 8 atoms will be different and make sense. Does a collective PDoS for the 4 A atoms or the 4 B atoms make sense, though?
