Total State Dynamics in the GKSL Regime
Research output: Contribution to journal › Research article › Contributed › peer-review
We develop a framework that allows us to describe the dynamics of the total state of an open quantum system and its bosonic environment in the usual Born (weak coupling) and Markov approximation. By shifting the whole time-dependence into an unnormalized s-operator of the open system, the full dynamics is captured by an s-master equation of similar structure than the well-known Gorini-Kossakowski-Sudarshan-Lindblad (GKSL) master equation for the reduced dynamics. By varying the ordering parameter s (0 ≤ s ≤ 1) we obtain the partial Husimi representation (s = 0) and the partial Glauber-Sudarshan representation (s = 1) for the dynamics of the total state. For the reduced density operator the GKSL master equation can be derived easily. The case of s = 1/2, leading to a partial Wigner representation, is helpful to study the overlap of states in the total Hilbert space of system and environment.
