Department of Physics
Synopsis:

The lecture is devoted to description of state, measurement and time evolution of quantum systems undergoing interaction with their environment. Attention is focused to both, discrete changes of quantum systems studied in different representations and continuous Markov dynamical semigroups.

Requirements:
Syllabus of lectures:

1. Description of composite quantum systems

2. Mathematical formalism of superoperators

3. Generalized quantum measurement

4. Quantum operations and their representation

5. Quantum dynamical semigroups

6. Quantum master equation

7. Microscopic description of quantum Markov processes

8. Spectral properties of quantum Markovgenerators
