Title: Ground state energy of large polaron systems

The last unsolved problem about the many-polaron system, in the Pekar–Tomasevich approximation, is the case of bosons with the electron-electron Coulomb repulsion of strength exactly 1 (the “neutral case”). We prove that the ground state energy, for large N, goes exactly as −N{sup 7/5}, and we give upper and lower bounds on the asymptotic coefficient that agree to within a factor of 2{sup 2/5}.
