77541 Introduction to Open Quantum Systems

Lecturer: Prof. Nir Bar Gil

The course will untroduce the subject of open quantum systems, along with the necessary mathematical tools and fundamental models. We will describe the relation to quantum information processing, decoherence and dynamical control, as well as to current research topics including quantum measurement and quantum dissipative dynamics. The theoretical concepts will be applied to a few realistic physical systems, such as NV centers in diamond and nano-mechanical oscillators
