For sufficiently low reservoir temperatures, it is known that open quantum systems subject to decoherent interactions with the reservoir relax toward their ground state in the weak coupling limit. Within the framework of quantum master equations, this is formalized by the Born-Markov-secular (BMS) approximation, where one obtains the system Gibbs state with the reservoir temperature as a stationary state. When the solution to some problem is encoded in the (isolated) ground state of a systemâ€¦Â Expand
