By Jerome Dorignac and others

The spectrum of the Quantum Discrete Nonlinear Schr\"odinger equation on a periodic 1D lattice shows some interesting detailed band structure which may be interpreted as the quantum signature of a two-breather interaction in the classical case. We show that this fine structure can be interpreted using degenerate perturbation theory.
