We derive a set of rules for transforming integrals over the time contour met in the theory of nonequilibrium Green's functions (NEGF) into usual integrals over the real and imaginary times for the case when the system's Hamiltonian is different on each track. This situation is encountered, e.g., in the influence functional formalism of the path integrals theory when integrating over all trajectories associated with a part of a system.
