Abstract

The coherent electronic transport through molecular junctions is theoretically modeled. The interplay of geometry, topology, and chemistry is explored within the Landauer picture of elastic scattering and various methods of quantum description of the composite system. The emphasis is on obtaining guiding principles for device optimization. Outstanding problems and future directions are outlined.
