Can crystal field splitting energy or spin-splitting energy be detected in a density-of-states plot? How?

What are the signs (if any) in DOS plots that tell us whether we have a big or small crystal-field splitting energy, or spin-splitting energy? I am asking in the context of this paper which discusses ...

DOS projection in alternate axis for eg and t2g contributions

I am studying doping in 0D and 2D perovskites which present tilted octahedra. It is important for me to analyze the contributions in the PDOS in terms of $e_g$ and $t_{2g}$ levels for d orbital in the ...
