Hi!

Would anyone be able to point me toward a detailed explanation of determining the Hamiltonian of a polyatomic quantum oscillator? My current text does not explain the change of coordinates ("using normal coordinates or normal modes") in detail.

All I can find is material on a diatomic quantum oscillator...

Thanks!
