Paper Abstract

We derive the asymptotic behavior of the nth order harmonic generation susceptibility using the Kubo response function formalism: it is characterized by a (omega) -2n-2 dependence and a coefficient proportional to the trace of the (n+1)th derivative of the potential energy on the equilibrium density matrix. Using this result and the analytical properties of the susceptibility considered we derive new Kramers-Kroenig relations and sum rules. The general properties obtained show a strict correspondence with those already obtained with the classical anharmonic oscillator model.
