Effective Hamiltonian for atom-surface interactions

Why and how do atoms chemically bond to surfaces?
This can be described by the Newns-Anderson model Hamiltonian.
A nice brief overview is the chapter on Hetergeneous Catalysis by Bligaard and Norskov, from the book Chemical Bonding at Surfaces and Interfaces.
