A generalized quantum Fokker-Planck theory is proposed to treat the correlated dynamics of coherent driving and Markovian dissipation. The resulting formulation is applicable to arbitrary external time-dependent driving fields and satisfies the detailed balance condition at arbitrary temperatures. Analyzed are also the formal relations among the Caldeira-Leggett quantum Fokker-Planck equation, the Bloch-Redfield theory, and the present formulation. The approach is numerically implemented todoi:10.1063/1.481212 fatcat:weerkcc6rzb5jm657f45sl43um
