Researchers try to get the temperature-independent energy spectrum of some materials for obtaining all their thermodynamic properties from their experimental heat capacities alone. However, measurements are made at finite temperatures in practice, such as with phonon spectra obtained by inelastic neutron scattering, so it is very difficult to obtain a T-independent energy spectrum for any real material. One promising method to obtain such a spectrum is to solve the so-called specific...
