Dr James Cresser
My research activities are principally concerned with the properties of open quantum systems, in particular non-Markovian systems, the use of the quantum trajectory method, quantum measurement theory, and quantum Brownian motion.
In more detail, the problems of current interest are as follows
- Studying the roles of coarse-graining in constructing physically acceptable master equations, with particular application to studying open systems interacting with thermal reservoirs;
- Studying the thermodynamic properties of quantum systems coupled to thermal reservoirs at different temperatures;
