The thesis content in Introduction should be described as follows:
“The thesis is organised as follows: in Chapter 2, we give an overview of main theoretical models and approaches of polaron theory. In Chapter 3, we discuss polarons and multi-polarons in the Holstein molecular-crystal model with introduced non-local term and some of our results achieved in the frame of this model. A general overview of the main aspects of spin-polaron theory are given in Chapter 4, while in Chapter 5, we discuss methods and ap- proaches of the density functional theory (DFT) we used in order to model polarons in oxides. Chapter 6 of this thesis is devoted to our results of the polaron numerical modelling in the frame of DFT. In Chapter 7, we discuss different theoretical models of the polaron propagation and, in particular, we describe our modelling of polaron motion in a crystal. Finally, in Appendices we discuss analitical derivation of polaron nonadiabatic transition rate.”.
