Cooperative Vibronic Effects: Electron Transfer in Solution and the Solid State
Vibronic interactions are discussed for systems comprising more than a single metal ion surrounded by ligands. The cases of two sites and one transferable electron, and two sites and two electrons are considered in detail. The case of N sites and N electrons illustrates the distinction between spin density wave and charge density wave ground states. Brief mention is made of superconductivity as a vibronic phenomenon.
