Onset of Decoherence in Open Quantum Systems

  author={Vladimir Privman},
We introduce a new approximation scheme for evaluation of onset of decoherence at low temperatures in quantum systems interacting with environment. The approximation is argued to apply at short and intermediate times. It provides an approach complementary to Markovian approximations and appropriate for evaluation of quantum computing schemes.
