The purpose of this talk is to present simple models (whose parameters are extracted from first-principles theory) that capture the basic physics of molecular conduction and provide intuitive explanations for a number of features in the observed current-voltage (I-V) characteristics. These intuitive models can be used to guide our search for novel molecular conductors.
