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.

These are the lecture notes for a one semester course at Leibniz University Hannover. The main aim of the course is to give an introduction to the mathematical methods used in describing discrete quantum systems consisting of infinitely many sites.
