We have developed a new approach to the computation of third-order spectroscopic signals of molecular rings, by incorporating the Davydov soliton theory into the nonlinear response function formalism. The Davydov D1 and D ˜ Ansätze have been employed to treat the interactions between the excitons and the primary phonons, allowing for a full description of arbitrary exciton-phonon coupling strengths. As an illustration, we have simulated a series of optical 2D spectra for two models of molecular rings.
