Non-Markovian Open Quantum Systems: System-Environment Correlations in Dynamical Maps

My paper on Non-Markovian Open Quantum systems has been published in the Special Issue of International Journal of Quantum Information (IJQI):

Non-Markovian Open Quantum Systems: System-Environment Correlations in Dynamical Maps

We construct a non-Markovian dynamical map that accounts for systems correlated to the environment. We refer to it as a canonical dynamical map, which forms an evolution family. The relationship between inverse maps and correlations with the environment is established. The mathematical properties of complete positivity is related to classical correlations, according to quantum discord, between the system and the environment. A generalized non-Markovian master equation is derived from the canonical dynamical map.

This paper is an updated version of my 2008 preprint.
