NOTICE: the handwritten notes vietri-lecturenotes.pdf used in class also have a printed version with more text: vietri-proceedings.pdf which can be downloaded here as well. It is going to be printed in Springer as a book chapter

2017-12-07: formal solution of lindblad (from vietri notes p.41)
Same in printed proceedings p.17

2017-12-07: Microscopic derivation (from vietri notes p.47)
Same in printed proceedings p.19
On 2017-12-14 we continued the chapter on "Microscopic derivation" until vietri-lecturenotes.pdf page 60.

On 2018-01-11 we continued the chapter on "Microscopic derivation" (now from printed proceedings) pag. 22-27

On 2018-01-18 we discussed the sol. of Eq. 50 and Sec. 4.5 (p. 27)

Task for 2018-01-25 Quantum regression theorem: Sec 6 (p.37), skip 6.1, then 6.2 except the very last paragraph.
Assignment for 2018-01-25: exercise on two sites with current

Correlation functions evaluated with QRT (Discussed on 2018-01-25).
At the end of these notes you'll find different assignements for 2018-02-01. Of course, you don't have to do all of them. Just pick what you prefer.
