We propose an alternative analytical expression for the density of states of a clean graphene in the nearest-neighbor approximation. In contrast to the previously known expression, it can be written as a single formula valid for the whole energy range. The correspondence with the previously known expression is shown and the limiting cases are analyzed.

Key words: graphene, density of states, Van Hove singularity
