Abstract
We have recently proposed a nonequilibrium Green’s function (NEGF) approach to include Auger decay processes in the ultrafast charge dynamics of photoionized molecules. Within the so-called generalized Kadanoff–Baym ansatz the fundamental unknowns of the NEGF equations are the reduced one-particle density matrix of bound electrons and the occupations of the continuum states. Both unknowns are one-time functions like the density in time-dependent functional theory (TDDFT). In this work…
