  journal={arXiv: Other Condensed Matter},
A simplified theory of the telescopic oscillations in multiwalled carbon nanotubes is developed. The explicit expressions for the telescopic force constants (longitudinal rigidity) and the frequencies of telescopic oscillations are derived. The contribution of small-amplitude telescopic oscillations to the nanotubes low temperature specific heat is estimated.
