# Repeated interactions in open quantum systems

@article{Bruneau2013RepeatedII, title={Repeated interactions in open quantum systems}, author={Laurent Bruneau and Alain Joye and Marco Merkli}, journal={arXiv: Mathematical Physics}, year={2013} }

Analyzing the dynamics of open quantum systems has a long history in mathematics and physics. Depending on the system at hand, basic physical phenomena that one would like to explain are, for example, convergence to equilibrium, the dynamics of quantum coherences (decoherence) and quantum correlations (entanglement), or the emergence of heat and particle fluxes in non-equilibrium situations. From the mathematical physics perspective, one of the main challenges is to derive the irreversible… Expand
