Using the scattering-theoretic method and employing the nearest-neighbor tight-binding formalism to describe the bulk electronic structure, we present the first calculations of electronic properties of the Si(337) surface. The surface band structure of Si(337) together with the projected bulk band, the wave-vector-resolved layer densities of states and the atom-resolved layer densities of states are presented. These results show that there are six surface bound states in the range from -12.0 to 2.0 eV. The localized surface features and orbital properties of these surface states along Γ-Y-S-X-Γ high symmetry lines of surface Brillouin zone are discussed.
