Abstract
A harmonic oscillator may display a nonlinear behavior when forced by an inhomogeneous field. We calculate the response of harmonic molecules adsorbed on a surface to a monochromatic electric field employing algebraic methods. The field inhomogeneity, due to image effects, produces harmonics which we evaluate non-perturbatively as a function of the intensity and frequency of the field and the distance to the substrate. We compare the results with those obtained using perturbation theory.
