Introduction to the Time Evolution of Open Quantum Systems
by Angel Rivas, Susana F. Huelga
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.

This book aims to give students the best possible understanding of the physical implications of quantum mechanics by explaining how quantum systems evolve in time, and showing the close parallels between quantum and classical dynamics.

This text introduces quantum mechanics from a more abstract point of view than a first quantum mechanics course. Students will gain a deeper understanding of the structure of quantum mechanics and of some of its key points.

Lecture notes by Professor F. J. Dyson for a course in Relativistic Quantum Mechanics given at Cornell University in the Fall of 1951 for the students who had courses in classical mechanics, electrodynamics and non-relativistic quantum theory.

An 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.
