Open many-body quantum systems have attracted renewed interest in the context of quantum information science and quantum transport with biological clusters and ultracold atomic gases. The physical relevance in many-particle bosonic systems lies in the realization of counter-intuitive transport phenomena and the stochastic preparation of highly stable and entangled many-body states due to engineered dissipation. We review a variety of approaches to describe an open system of interacting… 

Metallicity in the Dissipative Hubbard-Holstein Model: Markovian and Non-Markovian Tensor-Network Methods for Open Quantum Many-Body Systems

The Hubbard-Holstein Hamiltonian describes a prototypical model to study the transport properties of a large class of materials characterized by strong electron-phonon coupling. Even in the

Quantum and semiclassical dynamics as fluid theories where gauge matters

The family of trajectories-based approximations employed in computational quantum physics and chemistry is very diverse. For instance, Bohmian and Heller's frozen Gaussian semiclassical trajectories

Semiclassical bifurcations and quantum trajectories: a case study of the open Bose–Hubbard dimer

We consider the open two-site Bose–Hubbard dimer, a well-known quantum mechanical model that has been realised recently for photons in two coupled photonic crystal nanocavities. The system is

Symmetric dynamics in dissipative quantum many-body models

We show symmetric dynamics in dissipative quantum many-body systems. Given some conditions on the Hamiltonian and the jump operators, the time evolution of certain observables can be identical for

We establish a theoretical framework for exploring the quantum dynamics of finite ultracold bosonic ensembles based on the Born-Bogoliubov-Green-Kirkwood-Yvon (BBGKY) hierarchy for equations of

Current reversals and metastable states in the infinite Bose-Hubbard chain with local particle loss

We present an algorithm which combines the quantum trajectory approach to open quantum systems with a density-matrix renormalization group scheme for infinite one-dimensional lattice systems. We

Out-of-equilibrium quantum dynamics of fermionic gases in the presence of localized particle loss

We address the effects of dissipative defects giving rise to a localized particle loss, in one-dimensional non-interacting lattice fermionic gases confined within a region of size ℓ . We consider

From Non-Hermitian Linear Response to Dynamical Correlations and Fluctuation-Dissipation Relations in Quantum Many-Body Systems

Quantum many-body systems are characterized by their correlations. While equal-time correlators and unequal-time commutators between operators are standard observables, the direct access to

Bloch oscillations in a Bose–Hubbard chain with single-particle losses

We theoretically investigate Bloch oscillations in a one-dimensional Bose–Hubbard chain, with single-particle losses from the odd lattice sites described by a Lindblad equation. For a single particle

Noninteracting many-particle quantum transport between finite reservoirs

We present a formalism to study many-particle quantum transport across a lattice locally connected to two finite, non-stationary (bosonic or fermionic) reservoirs, both of which are in a thermal



Non‐equilibrium dynamics in dissipative Bose‐Hubbard chains

Open many‐body quantum systems have recently gained renewed interest in the context of quantum information science and quantum transport with biological clusters and ultracold atomic gases. A series

Dissipation through localized loss in bosonic systems with long-range interactions

In recent years, controlled dissipation has proven to be a useful tool for the probing of a quantum system in an ultracold setup. In this paper we consider the dynamics of bosons induced by a

The number-conserving quantum phase space description of the Bose-Hubbard model is discussed for the illustrative case of two and three modes, as well as the generalization of the two-mode case to an

Quantum dynamics of Bose-Hubbard Hamiltonians beyond the Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov approximation: The Bogoliubov back-reaction approximation

We formulate a method for studying the quantum field dynamics of ultracold Bose gases confined within optical lattice potentials, within the lowest Bloch-band Bose-Hubbard model. Our formalism

Nonequilibrium dynamics of bosonic atoms in optical lattices: Decoherence of many-body states due to spontaneous emission

We analyze in detail the heating of bosonic atoms in an optical lattice due to incoherent scattering of light from the lasers forming the lattice. Because atoms scattered into higher bands do not

Mean-field dynamics of a two-mode Bose–Einstein condensate subject to noise and dissipation

We discuss the dynamics of an open two-mode Bose–Hubbard system subject to phase noise and particle dissipation. Starting from the full many-body dynamics described by a master equation the

The link between the dissipative dynamics and the measurement of the density distribution of the BEC allowing for a generalized definition of the Zeno effect is demonstrated.

A quantum gas microscope for detecting single atoms in a Hubbard-regime optical lattice

A quantum gas ‘microscope’ that bridges the two approaches to creating highly controllable quantum information systems, realizing a system in which atoms of a macroscopic ensemble are detected individually and a complete set of degrees of freedom for each of them is determined through preparation and measurement.

Beyond mean-field dynamics in open Bose-Hubbard chains

We investigate the effects of phase noise and particle loss on the dynamics of a Bose-Einstein condensate in an optical lattice. Starting from the many-body master equation, we discuss the

How an interacting many-body system tunnels through a potential barrier to open space

This work analyzes a full, numerically exact many-body solution of the Schrödinger equation of a one-dimensional system with repulsive interactions tunneling to open space and shows how the emitted particles dissociate or fragment from the trapped and coherent source of bosons.
