It is shown how effective Hamiltonians are constructed in the framework of the adiabatic approach to the electron — vibration interaction in electron tunneling through single molecules. Methods for calculating tunneling characteristics are discussed and possible features resulting from the electron — vibration coupling are described. The intensity of vibrations excited by a tunneling current in various systems is examined.
