**Introduction to the Time Evolution of Open Quantum Systems**

by Angel Rivas, Susana F. Huelga

**Publisher**: arXiv 2011**Number of pages**: 101

**Description**:

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.

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.
