In this paper we have calculated the eigenvalues and wavefunctions for a coupled oscillator System based on the adiabatic approximation theory. The resuit is comparable with those of the other methods. The vibrational mode picture provided by the adiabatic approximation is preferable to that of the self-consistent field method.
