Abstract

We implement a method to study transport in a basis of many-body molecular states using the nonequilibrium Hubbard Green's function technique. A well-studied system, a junction consisting of benzene-dithiol on gold, is the focus of our consideration. Electronic structure calculations are carried out at the Hartree-Fock (HF), density functional theory (DFT), and coupled-cluster singles and doubles (CCSD) levels, and multiple molecular states are included in the transport calculation. The conductance calculation yields new information about the transport mechanism in BDT junctions.
