Irreversible Quantum Dynamics / Edition 1

This set of tutorial reviews is dedicated to all aspects of irreversibility and time asymmetry in quantum mechanics. The main themes addressed are:

- theoretical aspects of quantum irreversible dynamics

- open quantum systems and applications

- foundational aspects of irreversible quantum dynamics

- asymmetric time evolution and resonances

This volume will benefit graduate students and researchers looking for a readable account of the current status of the field. It is also suited for lecturers looking for advanced material for their courses and seminars.
