Stefano Cusumano, "Quantum Collision Model: effective models for quantum systems dynamics"




In recent years quantum collision models have proven to be very efficient and versatile effective models to study quantum system dynamics in many different regimes and systems, ranging from fully Markovian to highly non-Markovian dynamics, from simple Two Level Systems (TLS) to continuous variables. Their versatility allowed such models to be used in several contexts, such as quantum measurements, thermometry and thermodynamics, dissipative dynamics, gravity and more. In this talk I will review the main ingredients of quantum collision models, showing their basic working mechanisms and covering a couple of examples from the literature.
