Evolution of Open Quantum Systems: Time Scales, Stochastic and Continuous Processes

  title={Evolution of Open Quantum Systems: Time Scales, Stochastic and Continuous Processes},
  author={Tarek Khalil and Jean Richert},
The study of the physical properties of open quantum systems is at the heart of many investigations, which aim to describe their dynamical evolution on theoretical ground and through physical realizations. Here, we develop a presentation of different aspects, which characterize these systems and confront different physical situations that can be realized leading to systems, which experience Markovian, non-Markovian, divisible or non-divisible interactions with the environments to which they are…

Entropy and applications of the area law in open quantum systems.
Open quantum systems interact with their environment and their dynamical behaviour depends strongly both on the spectral properties of the environment and the structure of the interaction between the
Open quantum systems at finite temperature.
The consistent definition of the thermodynamic functions of small open quantum systems in contact with an environment in equilibrium with a heat bath has been the subject of many debates in the


Dynamics of non-Markovian open quantum systems
Open quantum systems (OQSs) cannot always be described with the Markov approximation, which requires a large separation of system and environment time scales. An overview is given of some of the most
Complete positivity, Markovianity, and the quantum data-processing inequality, in the presence of initial system-environment correlations.
This work shows that complete positivity is not only sufficient but also necessary for the validity of the quantum data-processing inequality, and provides an intuitive information-theoretic framework to unify and extend a number of previous results.
To catch and reverse a quantum jump mid-flight
Experiment overturns Bohr’s view of quantum jumps, demonstrating that they possess a degree of predictability and when completed are continuous, coherent and even deterministic.
Ensemble Method in the Theory of Irreversibility
We describe a new formulation of methods introduced in the theory of irreversibility by Van Hove and Prigogine, with the purpose of making their ideas easier to understand and to apply. The main tool
Completely Positive Divisibility Does Not Mean Markovianity.
It is shown that completely positive divisible quantum processes can still involve non-Markovian temporal correlations, that are then fully classify using the recently developed process tensor formalism, which generalizes the theory of stochastic processes to the quantum domain.
Simple Derivation of the Lindblad Equation.
The Lindblad equation is an evolution equation for the density matrix in quantum theory. It is the general linear, Markovian, form which ensures that the density matrix is Hermitian, trace 1,
Josephson photonics with a two-mode superconducting circuit
We analyze the quantum dynamics of two electromagnetic oscillators coupled in series to a voltage-biased Josephson junction. When the applied voltage leads to a Josephson frequency across the

Apesar da gestão de carreiras ser uma preocupação recente no quadro da gestão das relações de trabalho, é hoje evidente a crise em que se encontra a forma tradicional de abordagem desta problemática.
