**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.
