Lecture Notes on Quantum Brownian Motion
by Laszlo Erdos
Publisher: arXiv 2010
Number of pages: 92
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.

The first lecture describes the meaning of quantum complexity, the analogy between entropy and complexity, and the second law of complexity. Lecture two reviews the connection between the second law of complexity and the interior of black holes...

Reviews Lie groups, differential geometry, and adapts the usual notion of linear tangent application to the intrinsic point of view proposed for physics. The theory of heat conduction and the theory of linear elastic media are studied in detail.
