Response Theory of the Electron-Phonon Coupling
by

Publisher: arXiv
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.

I aim to discuss a reasonably wide range of quantum-mechanical phenomena from condensed matter physics, with an emphasis mainly on physical ideas. The most important prerequisite is some understanding of second quantization for fermions and bosons.
