Lecture Notes on Quantum Brownian Motion
by

Publisher: arXiv
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.
