    There are entire books written on the theory of STM.

    From: http://www.chemistry.adelaide.edu.au/external/soc-rel/content/stm.htm
    More detailed explanation :

    Tutorials and problems :

    IBM Almaden Labs uses the STM as a materials synthesis tool (to perform atomic re-arrangements) - their image gallery is really neat :
