By Robert Alicki, K. Lendi

During this textual content the authors improve quantum dynamics of open structures for a large classification of irreversible techniques ranging from the concept that of thoroughly optimistic semigroups. This unified method makes the cloth simply available to non-specialists and gives a simple entry to useful purposes. Written for graduate scholars, the publication offers a wealth of priceless examples; specifically, types of volatile and N-level structures are handled systematically and in significant aspect together with new different types of generated Bloch-equations. the final conception is widely summarized from summary dynamical maps to these received through a discount of Hamiltonian dynamics less than a Markovian approximation. a variety of equipment of identifying semigroup turbines and the corresponding grasp equations are mentioned together with time-dependent and nonlinear turbines. extra issues taken care of are a generalized H-theorem, quantum specific stability and go back to equilibrium, discrete quantum Boltzmann equation, nonlinear Schr?dinger equation, spin leisure via spin waves, entropy creation and its generalization by means of a degree of irreversibiblity.

Quantum Signatures of Chaos

This by means of now vintage textual content offers a great creation and survey to the always increasing box of quantum chaos . the themes taken care of comprise a close exploration of the quantum points of nonlinear dynamics, quantum standards to differentiate normal and abnormal movement, antiunitary symmetries (generalized time reversal), random matrix conception and an intensive account of the quantum mechanics of dissipative platforms.

The aim of this booklet is to introduce string thought with out assuming any historical past in quantum box thought. half I of this publication follows the advance of quantum box idea for element debris, whereas half II introduces strings. all the instruments and ideas which are had to quantize strings are constructed first for aspect debris.

It contains for example projectors on the subspace of N atomic states with a given symmetry with respect to permutations of atoms. Therefore the probability of finding the system in a state of a given symmetry is a constant of motion. , the energy trapping due to a quantum interference between atoms. The generator (147) is of a mean-field type as studied in the Subsubsect. 5. The associated nonlinear Schr¨ odinger equation (127) is of the following form, i δN d ψt = ωS 3 ψt − i dt 2 ψt | S + | ψt S − ψt − ψt | S − | ψt S + ψt with δ = δ 1 − e−βω .

3). Both matrices are functions of the dipole vectors dm , dn and the vectors (r m − r n ). In the following we shall use the notation hmn (ω) = amn , K (ω) Smn + (amn ) ≥ 0 , K Smn (−ω) K = Ωmn . (138) K ) determines the Hamiltonian correction to Hat . We remember that (Ωmn From (137) it follows that for K → ∞, Ωmn is singular at the point r m = r n . Therefore, we obtain an infinite contribution to any free atom Hamiltonian h(j) = ωSj3 . The usual procedure of removing it is the renormalization which consists in adding to h(j) a suitable K-dependent counterterm.

127) 2 α In the next chapter we shall apply the equation (127) to the model of superradiance. 1 The Hamiltonian of the System In this section we would like to illustrate the general theory presented in the previous sections by the example of N two-level atoms interacting with an electromagnetic field at a thermal equilibrium. This model was studied by many authors (see for example [37, 38] and references therein) mainly for the zero-temperature case without discussion of the complete positivity.
