We present a comprehensive examination of the occupied surface-weighted band structure of Mo(112) along the two high-symmetry directions of the surface Brillouin zone, both from theoretical and experimental perspectives. The band structures are found to be significantly different for the states along the two high-symmetry directions and for the states with even and odd reflection parities with respect to the mirror planes. The present study suggests the existence of a number of surface-weighted bands along both high-symmetry directions. The complexity of the band structure near the Fermi level may impose potential difficulties in experimental determination of the electron-phonon coupling parameters based on the effective mass enhancement distortion (or kink) in the energy-band dispersion, in the vicinity of the Fermi level, for several surface resonance bands of Mo(112).
