Paper Abstract

We apply the techniques of energy band theory to the analysis of polaron structure in ordered materials. Our interest is in the fact that the local structure of polarons involves information drawn from a large number of delocalized eigenstates. Polaron Wannier states are proposed as localized functions in which polaron structure is manifest. Examples of polaron Wannier states are constructed explicitly and their basic properties explained.
