The initial state analysis of the evolution of a nonlinear degenerate dimer shows that, in addition to the self-trapping transition, a new transition occurs while the particle is in the trapped region. This transition can be understood in part in terms of the behavior of a linear nondegenerate dimer, and is intimately related to the stationary states of the nonlinear dimer.
