    A formalism for calculating the mean spectral densities of the disordered surface alloy system (PtcCu1 - c)1 Cu(100), is presented, using simultaneously the matching and the Green functions methods. The surface vibrational dynamics are developed using an effective field approach that goes in principle beyond the mean field approximation. Describing the surface layer (PtcCu1 - c) by a random distribution of Pt and Cu atoms, we present numerical results for surface spectral densities, and surface mean-square displacements in this system, as a function of the defect concentration c (0 ≤ c ≤ 1).
