The Green functions play a big role in the calculation of the local density of states of the carbon nanostructures. We investigate their nature for the variously oriented and disclinated graphene-like surface. Next, we investigate the case of a small perturbation generated by two heptagonal defects and from the character of the local density of states in the border sites of these defects we derive their minimal and maximal distance on the perturbed cylindrical surface. For this purpose, we transform the given surface into a chain using the Haydock recursion method. We will suppose only the nearest-neighbor interactions between the atom orbitals, in other words, the calculations suppose the short-range potential.
