Paper Abstract

Based on earlier work on Toda rings we propose here a model for energy-rich excitations in molecules. Localization of energy may be due to the fusion of solitons at soft springs imbedded into a ring of hard springs. In thermal equilibrium an optimal temperature region exists, where the potential energy is concentrated at the soft sites. The energy distribution, the autocorrelation function and the spectrum of the forces is studied.
