The polaron features due to electron-phonon interactions with different coupling ranges are investigated by adopting a variational approach. The ground-state energy, the spectral weight, the average kinetic energy, the mean number of phonons, and the electron-lattice correlation function are discussed for the system with coupling to local and nearest-neighbor lattice displacements comparing the results with the long-range case. For large values of the coupling with nearest-neighbor sites, most… Expand

Quantum-entanglement aspects of polaron systems
