TU Dresden | Wintersemester 2022 / 2023

Open quantum systems

Open quantum systems

In winter semester 2022/23 I will offer a lecture on open quantum systems.

topics include

  • derivation of master equations
  • solving master equations
  • Full Counting Statistics (tracking energy-particle exchanges with the reservoir)
  • multi-terminal systems
  • quantum transport
  • quantum heat engines

time and place:

  • Wednesdays 6. DS (16:40-18:10) @ BZW A 120
  • caution: On Wednesday Nov 16th there will be no lecture (holiday)


  • linear algebra, quantum mechanics I, thermodynamics and statistics, motivation
  • quantum mechanics II may be helpful


The lecture will cover methods to treat open quantum systems (i.e., quantum systems coupled to reservoirs).

Time and place: Wednesdays @ 16:40-18:10, BZW A 120
