The tau-oscillator
The tau-oscillator is a one-dimensional quantum-mechanical oscillator which can exist only below a critical temperature Tmax. Its quantized energy levels have the usual form but, unusually, these degeneracies involve the energy levels. A generalized equipartition law is also found and the constant volume heat capacity can exhibit a Schottky anomaly.

Abstract

The tau-oscillator is a one-dimensional quantum-mechanical oscillator which can exist only below a critical temperature Tmax. Its quantized energy levels have the usual form but, unusually, these degeneracies involve the energy levels. A generalized equipartition law is also found and the constant volume heat capacity can exhibit a Schottky anomaly.
