**Response Theory of the Electron-Phonon Coupling**

by R. Starke, G. A. H. Schober

**Publisher**: arXiv 2016**Number of pages**: 169

**Description**:

This article presents a systematic theoretical enquiry concerning the conceptual foundations and the nature of phonon-mediated electron-electron interactions. Starting from the fundamental many-body Hamiltonian, we propose a simple scheme to decouple the electrons and nuclei of a crystalline solid via effective interactions.
