DescriptionAbstract
Starting
from
first
principles
, this
book
introduces
the
fundamental
concepts
and
methods
of
dissipative
quantum
mechanics
and
explores
related
phenomena
in
condensed
matter
systems
.
Major
experimental
achievements
in
cooperation
with
theoretical
advances
have
brightened
the
field
and
brought
it
to the
attention
of the
general
community
in
natural
sciences
.
Nowadays
,
working
knowledge
of
dissipative
quantum
mechanics
is
an
essential
tool
for
many
physicists
. This
book

originally
published
in
1990
and
republished
in
1999
and and
2008
as
enlarged
second
and
third
editions

delves
significantly
deeper
than
ever
before
into the
fundamental
concepts
,
methods
and
applications
of
quantum
dissipative
systems
. This
fourth
edition
provides
a
selfcontained
and
updated
account
of the
quantum
mechanics
of
open
systems
and
offers
important
new
material
including
the
most
recent
developments
. The
subject
matter
has been
expanded
by
about
fifteen
percent
.
Many
chapters
have been
completely
rewritten
to
better
cater
to
both
the
needs
of
newcomers
to the
field
and the
requests
of the
advanced
readership
.
Two
chapters
have been
added
that
account
for
recent
progress
in the
field
. This
book
should be
accessible
to
all
graduate
students
in
physics
.
Researchers
will
find
this a
rich
and
stimulating
source
.
