Special Issue on Raman Spectroscopy and its Applications


We have performed computer experiments on the dynamics of three-dimensional percolating networks. The results of the densities of states indicate the theoretically expected relationD(ω) ∼ Ω1/3 for scalar displacements. We also present the results of the density of states of fractons in which the Hamiltonian incorporates both bond-stretching and bond-bending force constants.
