Time‐ and frequency‐resolved optical signals provide insights into the properties of light‐harvesting molecular complexes, including excitation energies, dipole strengths and orientations, as well as in the exciton energy flow through the complex. The hierarchical equations of motion (HEOM) provide a unifying theory, which allows one to study the combined effects of system‐environment dissipation and non‐Markovian memory without making restrictive assumptions about weak or strong couplings or…
