Collective excitations in condensed matter have received considerable attention in the literature. The most thoroughly studied among such elementary excitations are the long-wave-length plasma oscillations in charged plasmas and the phonons in all states of aggregation of matter. The collective oscillations of a system of interacting neutral dipoles has not received the same attention.
