Using density matrices we describe the time evolution of nonequilibrium states with a set of hierarchical of quantum kinetic equations. An analogous formalism to this equation is developed via the path integral method in a holomorphic representation of density matrices and related to the Green’s function formalism. © 1996 American Institute of Physics.
