Anomalous vibrational states of a monatomic surface film
Vibrational states of a one-dimentional chain of atoms which models peculiarities of a monatomic surface film are considered. A set of nontrivial equilibrium states of the system is determined in whose vicinity almost linear band vibrations are possible. Peculiarities of anomalous branches of vibrational states are discussed. It is shown that the low-frequency gap of vibrational states disappears under certain conditions. This determines the possibility of appearance of low-frequency sound vibrations which are not possible for a trivial equilibrium distribution of atoms in the film.
