10 things you always wanted to know about non-Markovian open quantum systems

IICQI 2014
Talk type: 

In this talk I will pose 10 questions on non-Markovian open quantum systems and present my view on their answers. These are questions that I’ve been asked many times in the last 10 years and often come from misunderstandings on what we actually mean with non-Markovian quantum dynamics. In so doing I will introduce some non-Markovianity measures [1]-[4] and discuss their interest for quantum technologies [4]. The formal analogy between open quantum system theory and entanglement theory described in Ref. [5] will be the leitmotiv of my presentation.
