Dynamic Structure Factor for a Harmonic Oscillator and the Harmonic Oscillator Chain



The recurrance relation method is employed to determine the dynamic structure factor for the single harmonic oscillator and a linear chain of harmonic oscillators. Approximative schemes based on this approach are proposed. Comparison is made with exactly known results (© 2011 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim)
