PDOS of symmetrical atoms

  1. Sep 7, 2015 #1
    Hi. I am currently calculating PDOS of oxygen atoms in cubic phase of BaTiO3 using Abinit package. In cubic phase the 3 oxygen atoms in the primitive cell of BaTiO3 are identical and related by space group symmetry.

    Should I expect exactly the same PDOS diagrams for all three oxygen atoms?
    I ask this because the PDOS diagrams I got, while well defined in energy boundaries, differs in its intensity and relative trend within the energy boundary.

    Thank you.
