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.

From a general study of the relations between models, meaning the set of variables with their mathematical properties, and the measures they represent, a new formalism is developed, which covers the scope of Quantum Mechanics.

Statistical classical mechanics and quantum mechanics are two developed theories that contain a number of paradoxes. However the given paradoxes can be resolved within the framework of the existing physics, without introduction of new laws.

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.

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.
