Dear Alan,
Here is a useful sketch from projwfc.f90
!In the non-collinear, spin-orbit case (i.e. if there
is at least one
! fully relativistic pseudopotential) wavefunctions
are projected
! onto eigenstates of the total angular-momentum.
! Projected DOS are written to file
"filpdos".pdos_atm#N(X)_wfc#M(l_j),
! where N = atom number , X = atom symbol, M = wfc
number, l=s,p,d,f
! and j is the value of the total angular momentum.
! In this case the format is
! E LDOS(E) PDOS_1(E) ... PDOS_2j+1(E)
As concerns the second question the coefficients can
be considered as the weight of appropriate atomic
state to the energy band for a given k-point.
Please read carefully your output file, projected
atomic states are shown at the beginning of the file
(**.pdos.out usually).
In your case you can say that atomic state #1 (see
atom type and symmetry) contributes mainly to a band
you have chosen for a k-point (you have not shown
here).
Bests,
Eyvaz.
