Exactly solvable three-level quantum dissipative systems via bosonization of fermion gas-impurity models

We study the relationship between one-dimensional fermion gas-impurity models and quantum dissipative systems, via the method of constructive bosonization and unitary transformation. Starting from an


Dissipative quantum dynamics is newly formulated in order to study small systems such as quantum stochastic resonators which show stochastic resonance even in a single spin system coupled with

Extended two-level quantum dissipative system from bosonization of the elliptic spin- Kondo model

We study the elliptic spin- Kondo model (spin- fermions in one dimension with fully anisotropic contact interactions with a magnetic impurity) in the light of mappings to bosonic systems using the

Open system approach to non-equilibrium dynamical theory of quantum dot systems

We theoretically investigate the non-equilibrium quantum dynamical theory of a quantum dot system coupled to fermionic reservoirs using the recently developed stochastic fermionic quantum state

Dissipative Quantum Phase Transition in Cold Atomic Gases

We study the influence of a dissipative environment on a quantum mechanical system. The considered system is a particle in a periodic potential at zero temperature, which tunnels between neighboring

Dynamics of quantum dissipation systems interacting with fermion and boson grand canonical bath ensembles: hierarchical equations of motion approach.

A hierarchical equations of motion formalism for a quantum dissipation system in a grand canonical bath ensemble surrounding is constructed on the basis of the calculus-on-path-integral algorithm,

Path-integral methodology and simulations of quantum thermal transport: Full counting statistics approach.

The iterative full counting statistics path integral (iFCSPI) approach extends a previously well-established influence functional path integral method, by going beyond reduced system dynamics to provide the cumulant generating function of heat exchange.

Quantum-classical approximation beyond Redfield theory

A quantum-classical approximation, capable of describing the evolution of open quantum systems well beyond the applicability limits of Redfield theory is suggested. The theory is based on the short

Correlation Functions in Open Quantum-Classical Systems

This work presents a general scheme for the computation of correlation functions, which preserves the full quantum equilibrium structure of the system and approximates the time evolution with quantum-classical Liouville dynamics.
