Algebraic Approach to Vibrational Excitations in an Anharmonic Linear Chain
A description of vibrational excitations in one-dimensional monoatomic and diatomic Bravais lattices is presented by means of an algebraic model of n-coupled anharmonic oscillators. The anharmonic interaction corresponds to a Morse-like potential. The energy expression E(k) for one-phonon excitations is obtained analytically in both cases. In addition, we present numerical results for two-phonons.
