Using the Majorana fermion representation of spin-1/2 local moments, we show how the dynamic spin correlation and susceptibility are obtained directly from the one-particle Majorana propagator. We illustrate our method by applying it to the spin dynamics of a nonequilibrium quantum dot, computing the voltage-dependent spin relaxation rate and showing that, at weak coupling, the fluctuation-dissipation relation for the spin of a quantum dot is voltage dependent. We confirm the voltage-dependent…
