Molecular conduction and the characteristic polynomial

Patrick Fowler, Department of Chemistry (Sheffield, UK)

Molecular conduction can be modelled as a scattering problem in which the
usual Huckel problem is to be solved under different boundary conditions.
Chemical graph theory gives a simple closed form for conductance, and
insight into its dependence on molecular features.
