Nonhermitian effective Hamiltonian has been derived from the total system hermitian Hamiltonian using Brillouin-Wigner-Feshbach projection method, where the microscopic spin-dependent dissipation effect is correctly incorporated in the energy-dependent self-energy. Since the present method maintains the dynamical and chiral symmetries of the total system, we discovered two types of exceptional point (EP) singularities in a unified perspective: the EP surface and EP ring are attributed to the dynamical and chiral symmetry breaking, respectively. We have revealed that the coherent single-spin electron resonance (SSESR) spectrum reflects the complex eigenenergy spectrum of the system. We have formulated the SSESR spectrum in terms of the nonlinear response function in the Liouville-space pathway approach, where we have constructed the Liouville space basis using the complex eigenstates of the total Hamiltonian. We have calculated the one- and two-dimensional Fourier transform SSESR (1DFT and 2DFT) spectra reflecting the spin-relaxation dynamics at the donor site. While the 1DFT SSESR spectrum reflects the complex eigenenergy spectrum, the 2DFT gives detailed information on the quantum coherence in the spin-relaxation dynamics as a cross-correlation between the two frequencies. We found a giant response of the coherent SSESR around the EP ring singularity due to the vanishing normalization factors at the EP ring and the resonance effect. We have discovered that the giant response is much larger in magnitudes in the 2DFT spectrum than in the 1DFT spectrum, which promises the 2DFT SSESR a useful tool to observe the single-spin response in a molecule.
