And screams his war-cry to the gale.

In science:

One of the effects of this disorder is, as always, the softening of the van-Hove singularities (not shown).

Hove singularities and the development of Lifshitz tails (not shown) at the band edge, both induced by the increasing disorder caused by the random dilution.
Modeling disorder in graphene
The apparent saturation for smaller t0 is due to the proximity to the van Hove singularity.
Modeling disorder in graphene
In addition, the presence of a van Hove singularity (vHs) at ω = 4.4 eV in the JDOS, corresponding to the π → π∗ transition between the bands saddle points, located at the M point of the Brillouin Zone (BZ) , allows the photoinjection of high carrier densities in the outermost graphene layers.
