Part of the Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences book series (SSSOL, volume 184)


Vibrons and electron-vibron interactions are introduced. Basic electron-vibron phenomena, electron tunneling spectroscopy and the Persson-Baratoff model of inelastic STM spectroscopy are presented. The polaron model and the master equation for sequential tunneling are discussed.
