# Dynamical role of system-environment correlations in non-Markovian dynamics

@article{Mazzola2012DynamicalRO, title={Dynamical role of system-environment correlations in non-Markovian dynamics}, author={L. Mazzola and C'esar A. Rodr'iguez-Rosario and Kavan Modi and Mauro Paternostro}, journal={Physical Review A}, year={2012}, volume={86}, pages={010102} }

We analyse the role played by system-environment correlations in the emergence of non-Markovian dynamics. By working within the framework developed in Breuer et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 103, 210401 (2009), we unveil a fundamental connection between non-Markovian behaviour and dynamics of system-environment correlations. We derive an upper bound to the rate of change of the distinguishability between different states of the system that explicitly depends on the development and establishment of…

This analysis clarifies how the interplay between system-environment correlations and environmental-state distinguishability can lead to the same information flow from and toward the open system, despite significant qualitative and quantitative differences at the level of the global evolution.
