Synopsis:

The course is devoted to a mathematical structure, spectral properties and applications of quantum Markov processes. Knowledge of fundamentals of open quantum systems is expected.

1. Microscopic derivation, Nakajima-Zwanzig equation, weak coupling limit, master equation for particular quantum systems
