The Quantum Theory of Solitons with Thermal Vibration Taken into Account
Many investigations of autolocalized states—solitons—in molecular systems have used the classical description of molecular displacements from equilibrium positions at T = 0. In those cases quantum fluctuations of the equilibrium positions and thermal vibrations of molecule about new equilibrium position were not taken into account.
