Other lines which have been modeled in some detail include Ca II K (Fang et al. 1993) and the Ca II λ8542 line (Ding 2003; Berlicki et al. 2008), i.e. those which have received observational attention.

In fact in the Fano case, we may replace the K-energy to the Ding functional to obtain the corresponding result.
On the limit of spectral measures associated to a test configuration
Convexity of the Ding functional along any weak geodesic ray was established in [Bern11] and the relation between the gradient of the Ding functional and F1 was shown in [Berm12].

This is shown in Fig. 5 where Ding et al. (1997) plot the Fermi surface from samples of Bi 2212 with different doping levels.
The pseudogap in high-temperature superconductors: an experimental survey
This was confirmed with better resolution by Ding et al. (1996). A recent plot of the gap as a function of angle around the Fermi surface is shown in Fig. 7 from Randeria and Campuzano (1997).
The pseudogap in high-temperature superconductors: an experimental survey
Loeser et al. (1996) and Ding et al. (1996) reported that the leading edge gap seen in the superconducting state was also present in the normal state in underdoped Bi 2212.
The pseudogap in high-temperature superconductors: an experimental survey
The issue of the shape of the Fermi surface is addressed in a recent paper by Ding et al. (1997).
The pseudogap in high-temperature superconductors: an experimental survey
Ding et al. (1997) report that in the ARPES spectra a similar parallel can be seen in the k dependence of the locus of minimum gap in the pseudogap and the superconducting gap — both seem to be tied to the Fermi surface.
The pseudogap in high-temperature superconductors: an experimental survey
From the 42 sources in common between this paper and the 2 cm survey, we identify 64 components that can (at least at a single epoch) be identified with a correspon ding component from the other survey.
