Describing a quantum impurity coupled to one or more non-interacting fermionic reservoirs is a paradigmatic problem in quantum many-body physics. While historically the focus has been on the equilibrium properties of the impurity-reservoir system, recent experiments with mesoscopic and cold-atomic systems enabled studies of highly non-equilibrium impurity models, which require novel theoretical techniques. We propose an approach to analyze impurity dynamics based on the matrix-product state…

Beyond The Fermi's Golden Rule: Discrete-Time Decoherence Of Quantum Mesoscopic Devices Due To Bandlimited Quantum Noise
Inspired by the Kotelnikov sampling theorem from the theory of classical bandlimited signals, the idea that the real-time dissipative quantum motion has a natural structure of a discrete-time matrix product state, with a bounded bond dimension is explored and yields a microscopically derived collision model.


Solving Quantum Impurity Problems in and out of Equilibrium with the Variational Approach.
A versatile and efficient variational approach is developed to solve in- and out-of-equilibrium problems of generic quantum spin-impurity systems, and a new canonical transformation is presented that completely decouples the impurity and bath degrees of freedom.

Many-body localized (MBL) phases of disordered quantum many-particle systems have a number of unique properties, including failure to act as a thermal bath and protection of quantum coherence.
Nonequilibrium Steady-State Transport in Quantum Impurity Models: A Thermofield and Quantum Quench Approach Using Matrix Product States.
These limitations can be overcome by describing the thermal leads using a thermofield approach, integrating out high energy modes using NRG, and then treating the nonequilibrium dynamics at low energies using a quench protocol, implemented using the time-dependent density matrix renormalization group.
Universal many-body response of heavy impurities coupled to a Fermi sea: a review of recent progress
It is shown that the physics of the orthogonality catastrophe is experimentally observable up to temperatures and it is proved that within the considered model the fastest rate of long-time decoherence is given by the Toeplitz determinants.
Exact diagonalization as an impurity solver in dynamical mean field theory
Abstract The dynamical mean-field theory (DMFT) maps a correlated lattice problem onto an impurity problem of a single correlated site coupled to an uncorrelated bath. Most implementations solve the
