We propose an extension to the Davydov D_2 Ansatz in the dynamics study of the Holstein molecular crystal model with diagonal and off-diagonal exciton-phonon coupling using the Dirac-Frenkel time-dependent variational principle. The new trial state by the name of the "multi-D_2 Ansatz" is a linear combination of Davydov D_2 trial states, and its validity is carefully examined by quantifying how faithfully it follows the Schrödinger equation. Considerable improvements in accuracy have beendoi:10.1063/1.4923009 pmid:26156471 fatcat:togc6uolqjewbllbabvclr4ja4
