Covalent excitations of a polyphene polymer via A Herndon-Simpson model Academic Article uri icon


  • The excited-state spectrum of a type of resonance-theoretic model Hamiltonian for an extended polyphene chain is treated. The general "transfer-matrix" technique enables explicit inclusion of electron-correlation effects, while still yielding a quasi-particle picture for excitations. 1989.
