Local density of states (LDOS) is a physical quantity that describes the density of states, but space-resolved. In materials science, this term is useful when interpreting the data from an STM, since this method is capable of imaging electron densities of states with atomic resolution. According to crystal's structure, this quantity can be predicted by computational methods, as for example with density functional theory.
