Dynamics of open quantum systems by interpolation of von Neumann and classical master equations, and its application to quantum annealing
Author(s): Tadashi Kadowaki
We propose a method to interpolate dynamics of von Neumann and classical master equations with an arbitrary mixing parameter to investigate the thermal effects in quantum dynamics. The two dynamics are mixed by intervening to continuously modify their solutions, thus coupling them indirectly instead...
