The second reason is that calculated values are harmonic frequencies while the experimental values contain anharmonic vibrational frequencies.
X-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) has developed into a powerful probe of atomic structure, thermodynamic properties, and anharmonic effects in atomic vibration of substances [1-28].

The third term is a harmonic term and the fourth is an anharmonic term and they are responsible also for quark confinement.
To model this motion each base of a strand is assumed to be coupled with the next-neighbour bases of the same strand by the elastic backbone restoring forces and with the complementary base in the opposite strand by the anharmonic potential used to model the hydrogen bond.

However, since by hypothesis (8) the values of the frequency of oscillations w lie outside the range of the linear (phonon) band, the corresponding orbits are anharmonic. This necessitates amplitude-depending tuning of the frequency so that the latter comes to lie outside of the phonon spectrum.
However, due to the anharmonic feature of vibrations, the combination bands appear at a wavenumber that is higher than the sum of the fundamental bands [37].

The stress-strain relation of higher harmonic generation for a hyperelastic material is obtained from the nonlinear governing equations of Murnaghan model, which has a qualitative description of anharmonic vibration, and the strain energy function W(E) is
