    We examine the isotope effect in copper-oxygen high-T[sub c] superconductors using the model of polar Jahn-Teller centers, a variant of the local-boson model. The isotope-effect exponents for oxygen and copper depend on the structure of Jahn-Teller centers and its variation due to boson motion....
