Pdos Examination

2/17/11:
I finally have enough data to dig into how the PDOS changes as a function of number of k-points.

40 k-points come from a 3x3x3 grid while 84 k-points come from a 4x4x4 grid. From the picture we can see that while the sharpness of the graph certainly improves between 40 and 84 k-points, the density doesn't change very much. Thus we should feel comfortable drawing conclusions from PDOS's with few k-points.
