Discusses the development of a variation of density matrix formulation based on the nature of field-matter interference in a mixed-time frequency domain to study molecular pump-probe absorption spectra in condensed phases. Consideration of the integrated probe transmittant signals and the frequency-dispersed transient absorption coefficients for molecular systems with electronic surfaces involved.

    Damped response theory is applied to the calculation of two-photon absorption (TPA) spectra, which are determined directly, at each frequency, from a modified damped cubic response function. The TPA spectrum may therefore be evaluated for selected frequency ranges, making the damped TPA approach...
