Coupling of Surface and Volume Dipole Oscillations in C60 Molecules


We first give a short review of the “local-current approximation” (LCA), derived from a general variation principle, which serves as a semiclassical description of strongly collective excitations in finite fermion systems starting from their quantum-mechanical meanfield ground state. We illustrate it for the example of coupled translational and… (More)
