The theory of hierarchical equations of motion (HEOM) is one of the standard methods to give exact evaluations of the dynamics as coupled to harmonic oscillator environments. However, the theory is numerically demanding due to its hierarchy, which is the set of auxiliary elements introduced to capture the non-Markovian and non-perturbative effects of environments. When system-bath coupling becomes relatively strong, the required computational resources and precision move beyond the regime that…

Coupled charge and energy transfer dynamics in light harvesting complexes from a hybrid hierarchical equations of motion approach.

We describe a method for simulating exciton dynamics in protein-pigment complexes, including effects from charge transfer as well as fluorescence. The method combines the hierarchical equations of

A simple improved low temperature correction for the hierarchical equations of motion.

The study of open system quantum dynamics has been transformed by the hierarchical equations of motion (HEOM) method, which gives the exact dynamics for a system coupled to a harmonic bath at
