The first attempt to synthesize chainlike carbon was made by A. von Baeyer  as long ago as 1885. However, in the framework of the stepwise synthetic procedure employed by Baeyer, he did not succeed in isolating even tetraacetylene, which is extremely unstable. The instability of the lower polyynes led Baeyer to develop a strain theory, in which he postulated the impossibility of preparing chainlike carbon. Baeyer's reputation dampened the interest of scientists in the synthesis of polyynes for a long time.
Apart from a commonly used Hubbard term of Coulomb interaction on the same site , the Hamiltonian also includes the exchange interaction of different p-electrons (px and py) on the same atom and on a neighboring one in the same and different p-orbitals. Moreover the alternation of bond length was also taken into account. As a solution of the problem the SDW, CDW, and Peierls' ordering was obtained. The authors found that the wave phases in orthogonal px- and py-systems can be both in phase and out of phase [29,30].
