Abstract: In condensed matter physics, the polaron has been fascinating subject. It is described by the Hamiltonian of H. Fröhlich. In this paper, the Fröhlich Hamiltonian is investigated from a viewpoint of operator inequalities proposed in [36]. This point of view clarifies the monotonicity of polaron energy, i.e., denoting the lowest energy of the Fröhlich Hamiltonian with the ultraviolet cutoff Λ by E Λ , we prove E Λ > E Λ ′ for Λ < Λ ′ .
