We derive a general fluctuation theorem for quantum maps. The theorem applies to a broad class of quantum dynamics, such as unitary evolution, decoherence, thermalization, and other types of evolution for quantum open systems. The theorem reproduces well-known fluctuation theorems in a single and simplified framework and extends the Hatano-Sasa theorem to quantum nonequilibrium processes. Moreover, it helps to elucidate the physical nature of the environment that induces a given dynamics in an… 

Fluctuation Theorems for Quantum Maps

Part II of the thesis has been devoted to the study of dynamical properties of dissipative quantum many-body systems, where we employed open quantum system theory and its related quantum information

Symmetry-induced fluctuation relations in open quantum systems.

We derive a general scheme to obtain quantum fluctuation relations for dynamical observables in open quantum systems. For concreteness, we consider Markovian nonunitary dynamics that is unraveled in

Quantum Fluctuation Theorems for Arbitrary Environments: Adiabatic and Nonadiabatic Entropy Production

We analyze the production of entropy along nonequilibrium processes in quantum systems coupled to generic environments. First, we show that the entropy production due to final measurements and the

Fluctuation-dissipation theorem for non-equilibrium quantum systems

The fluctuation-dissipation theorem (FDT) is a central result in statistical physics, both for classical and quantum systems. It establishes a relationship between the linear response of a system

Quantum Fluctuation Theorems

Recent advances in experimental techniques allow one to measure and control systems at the level of single molecules and atoms. Here gaining information about fluctuating thermodynamic quantities is

Fluctuation Theorems for a Quantum Channel

We establish the general framework of quantum fluctuation theorems by finding the symmetry between the forward and backward transitions of any given quantum channel. The Petz recovery map is adopted

Quantum Martingale Theory and Entropy Production.

This work identifies a decomposition of entropy production into an exponential martingale and a purely quantum term, both obeying integral fluctuation theorems, and complements the general formalism with numerical simulations of a qubit system.

Information fluctuation theorem for an open quantum bipartite system.

This work presents a fluctuation theorem (FT) that explicitly addresses the quantum correlation of subsystems during the thermodynamic evolution and derives a FT in such a form that relates the entropy production of local systems in the time-forward transition to the change of quantum correlation in theTime-reversed transition.

Fluctuation theorems for continuous quantum measurements and absolute irreversibility

Fluctuation theorems are relations constraining the out-of-equilibrium fluctuations of thermodynamic quantities like the entropy production that were initially introduced for classical or quantum

A quantum fluctuation theorem for dissipative processes

We present a general quantum fluctuation theorem for the entropy production of an open quantum system coupled to multiple environments, not necessarily at equilibrium. Such a general theorem, when



Theory of open quantum systems

A quantum dissipation theory is constructed with the system–bath interaction being treated rigorously at the second-order cumulant level for both reduced dynamics and initial canonical boundary

Quantum signatures of chaos

The distinction between level clustering and level repulsion is one of the quantum analogues of the classical distinction between globally regular and predominantly chaotic motion (see Figs. 1, 2,
