Lecture Notes on the Theory of Open Quantum Systems
by Daniel A. Lidar
Publisher: arXiv.org 2019
Number of pages: 131
This is a self-contained set of lecture notes covering various aspects of the theory of open quantum system, at a level appropriate for a one-semester graduate course. The main emphasis is on completely positive maps and master equations, both Markovian and non-Markovian.

Expository notes which combine a historical survey of the development of quantum physics with a review of selected mathematical topics in quantization theory (addressed to students that are not complete novices in quantum mechanics).

This paper introduces one interpretation of quantum mechanics, a modern 'many-worlds' theory, from the perspective of quantum computation. Reasons for seeking to interpret quantum mechanics are discussed, then the specific theory is introduced.

This volume elucidates the consistent quantum theory approach to quantum mechanics at a level accessible to university students in physics, chemistry, mathematics, and computer science, making this an ideal supplement to standard textbooks.

A discussion of several aspects of our present understanding of quantum mechanics. The emphasis is put on the special correlations that this theory makes possible: they are forbidden by very general arguments based on realism and local causality.
