**Lecture Notes on Quantum Brownian Motion**

by Laszlo Erdos

**Publisher**: arXiv 2010**Number of pages**: 92

**Description**:

Einstein's kinetic theory of the Brownian motion, based upon light water molecules continuously bombarding a heavy pollen, provided an explanation of diffusion from the Newtonian mechanics. Since the discovery of quantum mechanics it has been a challenge to verify the emergence of diffusion from the Schroedinger equation.

**Euclidean Random Matrices and Their Applications in Physics**

by

**arXiv**

We review the state of the art of the theory of Euclidean random matrices, focusing on the density of their eigenvalues. Both Hermitian and non-Hermitian matrices are considered and links with simpler random matrix ensembles are established.
