**Quantum Dissipative Systems**

by F. Guinea, E. Bascones, M.J. Calderon

1998**Number of pages**: 81

**Description**:

One of the most interesting topic of quantum mechanics is the study of open quantum systems. By it, we mean a simple quantum system, described by one or a few degrees of freedom, interacting with a background characterized by a continuum of excitations.
