Epsilon_2 is *almost* directly proportional to the JDoS. It is exactly proportional if the matrix element for the transition is independent of the position in k-space on the surface that defines the energetically allowed transition. For most purposes in crystals, the matrix element is only weakly dependent, and people like to just move it outside of the integral and replace it with an averaged matrix element.
