Abstract: We describe a method to obtain the reduced density matrix (RDM) correct up to second order in system-bath coupling in nonequilibrium steady-state situations. The RDM is obtained via a scheme based on analytic continuation, using the time-local Redfield-like quantum master equation, which was earlier used by the same authors to obtain the correct thermal equilibrium description. This nonequilibrium modified Redfield solution is then corroborated with the exact RDM obtained via the nonequilibrium Green's function technique for the quantum harmonic oscillator. Lastly, the scheme is compared to different quantum master equations (QMEs), namely the time-local Redfield-like and the Lindblad-like QMEs, in order to illustrate the differences between each of these approaches. © 2013 American Physical Society.
