I can't seem to find any documentation anywhere about what formulas are used; all I can ascertain from the gmx dos source code is that it involves integrating the diffusion and solid components of the density of states (each multiplied by some weighting factor). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

gmx dos will compute the quantum correction to cv and apply it (ad hoc) 
to cp. The system is considered to consist of argon atoms rather than 
molecules (this will be fixed in a new version).
