Summary:
In the last two decades extraordinary progress in the experimental handling of single quantum objects has spurred theoretical research into investigating the coupling between quantum systems and their environment. Decoherence, the gradual deterioration of entanglement due to dissipation and noise fed into the system by the environment, has emerged as a central concept. The present set of lectures is intended as a high-level, but self-contained, introduction into the fields of quantum noise and dissipation. In particular their influence on decoherence and applications pertaining to quantum information and quantum communication are studied, leading the nonspecialist researchers and the advanced students gradually to the forefront of research.
Contents:
Path Integrals and Their Application to Dissipative Quantum Systems
Five Lectures on Dissipative Master Equations
Stochastic Resonance
Quantum Markov Processes
Decoherence in Quantum Physics
Quantum Communication and Decoherence
How to Correct Small Quantum Errors.
