Abstract: We review the current theory of very low mass stars model atmospheres including the coolest known M dwarfs, M subdwarfs, and brown dwarfs, i.e., T_eff <= 5,000 K and -2.0 <= [M/H] <= +0.0. We discuss ongoing efforts to incorporate molecular and grain opacities in cool stellar spectra, as well as the latest progress in deriving the effective temperature scale of M dwarfs. We especially present the latest results of the models related to the search for brown dwarfs.
