This thesis reports new results on self-assembled nanostructures on silicon surfaces studied by a combination of low-temperature scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and spectroscopy (STS), dynamical low-energy electron diffraction (LEED), angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) and ¯rst-principles calculations within the framework of density functional theory (DFT).
