Abstract

A method developed by Sandalov [Int. J. Quantum Chem. 94, 113 (2003)] is applied to inelastic transport in the case of strong correlations on the molecule, which is relatively weakly coupled to contacts. The ability of the approach to deal with the transport in the language of many-body molecular states as well as to take into account charge-specific normal modes and nonadiabatic couplings is stressed. We demonstrate the capabilities of the technique within simple model calculations and compare it to previously published approaches.
