Introduction to the Time Evolution of Open Quantum Systems

Publisher: arXiv 2011
Number of pages: 101
We revise fundamental concepts in the dynamics of open quantum systems in the light of modern developments in the field. Our aim is to present a unified approach to the quantum evolution of open systems that incorporates the concepts and methods traditionally employed by different communities.

A short review of ideas in quantum information theory. Quantum mechanics is presented together with some useful tools for quantum mechanics of open systems. The treatment is pedagogical and suitable for beginning graduates in the field.

This book deals with the kinematics of diffusion processes. The dynamical equations are derived from a variational principle, and interference, the asymptotics of free motion, bound states, statistics, and spin are described in classical terms.
