We present an STM theory based on the reduced density matrix (RDM) formalism which is able to describe transport properties of an STM junction for π-conjugated molecules on thin insulating films. It combines a very popular derivation of STM tunneling matrix elements (), based on Bardeen's tunneling formalism (), with a generalized master equation approach for interacting molecular systems. We ...
