Solitons in polyacetylene and relativistic-field-theory models


Using recent results on a model relativistic field theory, we find explicitly a new solitonlike solution, essentially the conventional strong polaron, in the continuum interacting electronphonon model of a Peierls-dimerized chain such as polyacetylene [(CH}„].This solution is in good agreement with recent numerical simulations in a discrete model of (CH)„. %e discuss further areas in which known field-theory results may apply to (CH)„.
