  1. Open quantum system

    In physics, an open quantum system is a quantum-mechanical system which interacts with an external quantum system, the environment or bath. In general, these interactions significantly change the dynamics of the system and result in quantum dissipation, where the information contained in the system is lost to its environment. Because no quantum system is completely isolated from its surroundings, it is important to develop a theoretical framework for treating these interactions in order to obtain an accurate understanding of quantum systems. Techniques developed in the context of open quantum systems have proven powerful in fields such as quantum optics, quantum measurement theory, quantum statistical mechanics, quantum information science, quantum thermodynamics, quantum cosmology, quantum biology, and semi-classical approximations.
