I am new on the VASP platform, and have learned how to calculate any material's DOS and Band structure.

However, I don't know how to interpret these properties. Can you recommend resources that explain the basics of DOS and band structure interpretation?

    $\begingroup$ There a number of questions on this site that have discussed how to interpret DOS and band structures: mattermodeling.stackexchange.com/questions/1791/…, mattermodeling.stackexchange.com/questions/4867/…, mattermodeling.stackexchange.com/questions/4555/… (and many more under the tags for those properties). I think these cover the basic ideas and any more detail would probably require reading a book on solid state physics. $\endgroup$
