Basic formulas for the two-time correlation functions are derived using the Poisson representation method. The formulas for the chemical system in thermodynamic equilibrium are shown to relate directly to the fluctuationdissipation theorems, which may be derived from equilibrium statistical mechanical considerations. For nonequilibrium systems, the formulas are shown to be generalizations of these fluctuation-dissipation theorems, but containing an extra term which arises entirely from the nonequilibrium nature of the system. These formulas are applied to two representative examples of equilibrium reactions (without spatial diffusion) and to a nonequilibrium chemical reaction model (including the process of spatial diffusion) for which the first two terms in a systematic expansion for the two-time correlation functions are calculated. The relation between the Poisson representation method and Glauber-SudarshanP-representation used in quantum optics is discussed.
