The introduction of non-orthogonal atomic orbitals, into the tight-binding approximation, gives rise to the existence of overlap terms in electronic band-structure calculations. In contrast to the zero-overlap situation, it is helpful to employ a tensorial Green-function approach to access the surface density of states, and investigate the effects of overlap on its behaviour.
