Dynamics of Open Quantum Systems II, Markovian Approximation
A finite-dimensional quantum system is coupled to a bath of oscillators in thermal equilibrium at temperature T>0. We show that for fixed, small values of the coupling constant λ, the true reduced
Correlation decay and Markovianity in open systems
A finite quantum system S is coupled to a thermal, bosonic reservoir R. Initial SR states are possibly correlated, obtained by applying a quantum operation taken from a large class, to the uncoupled

Abstract Following the ideas N. N. Bogoliubov used to derive the classical and quantum nonlinear kinetic equations, we derive the Redfield quantum linear master equation, which is widely used in the
Perturbation Analysis of Quantum Reset Models
TLDR
This paper proves the existence of a unique steady state for the perturbed reset Lindbladian, analytic in the coupling constant, and analyzes the large times dynamics of the corresponding CPTP Markov semigroup that describes the approach to the steady state.
Completely positive master equation for arbitrary driving and small level spacing
TLDR
A recently derived Markovian coarse-grained master equation (CGME), already known to be completely positive, has a much expanded range of applicability compared to the Davies equation, and moreover, is locally generated and can be generalized to accommodate arbitrarily fast driving.
Dynamics of Open Quantum Systems I, Oscillation and Decay
We develop a framework to analyze the dynamics of a finite-dimensional quantum system S in contact with a reservoir R. The full, interacting SR dynamics is unitary. The reservoir has a stationary
Steady state in ultrastrong coupling regime: perturbative expansion and first orders
Understanding better the dynamics and steady states of systems strongly coupled to thermal baths is a great theoretical challenge with promising applications in several fields of quantum technologies.
Unified Gorini-Kossakowski-Lindblad-Sudarshan quantum master equation beyond the secular approximation
Derivation of a quantum master equation for a system weakly coupled to a bath which takes into account nonsecular effects, but nevertheless has the mathematically correct Gorini–Kossakowski–
Hamiltonian of mean force in the weak-coupling and high-temperature approximations and refined quantum master equations
The Hamiltonian of mean force is a widely used concept to describe the modification of the usual canonical Gibbs state for a quantum system whose coupling strength with the thermal bath is

A Resonance Theory for Open Quantum Systems with Time-Dependent Dynamics
We develop a resonance theory to describe the evolution of open systems with time-dependent dynamics. Our approach is based on piecewise constant Hamiltonians: we represent the evolution on each
Markovian master equations: a critical study
TLDR
The results of these illustrative examples serve to clarify the general properties of other open quantum system scenarios subject to treatment within a Markovian approximation, and assess the robustness of the assumptions usually made in the process of deriving the reduced Markovians.
On the irreversible dynamics emerging from quantum resonances
We consider the dynamics of quantum systems which possess stationary states as well as slowly decaying, metastable states arising from the perturbation of bound states. We give a decomposition of the

We study the properties of a refined weak coupling limit that preserves complete positivity in order to describe non-Markovian dynamics in the spin-boson model. With this tool, we show the system
