Quantummechanical derivation of the Davydov equations for multiquanta states
Abstract
The purpose here is to present a derivation of the Davydov equations which employs only quantummechanical techniques. The derivation here is more general than the previous treatment of this problem because an Ansatz is used which has present several quanta of the high frequency oscillator system rather than just one quantum. Since some steps of the calculation are the same as those in the paper which treats the single quantum case, reference will be made to that paper for some of the those details.
