Entry requirements:
  •  Master’s degree / equivalent in a related field
  •  B2 level of English

  •  Strong research proposal 1,500 - 3,500 words

Research supervisor:
Alexander Teretenkov

Supervisor’s research interests:
I study a wide range of problems in the theory of open quantum systems. But there are several topics which I am especially interested in:
  •  Exactly solvable Gorini-Kossakowski-Sudarshan-Lindblad equations, especially the generalizations of the equations with generators which are quadratic in creation and annihilation operators.
  •  Exactly solvable models of non-Markovian quantum evolutions, especially by pseudo mode method generalizations.
  •  Perturbative derivation of master equations both by projective and stochastic limit methods, especially in the case when it could be done for all the orders of perturbation theory.

Research highlights:
  • The theory of open quantum systems is a theoretical basis of modern spectroscopy, quantum optics, quantum measurement theory, quantum thermodynamics and has a wide range of physical applications. It belongs to the intersection of cutting edges of physics and mathematics. There is a very wide and active community providing a great number of conferences, seminars and grant possibilities.
  • Supervisor’s specific requirements:
  •  Basic knowledge of theory of open quantum systems (circa Chapters 2-3 in H.P.Breuer and F.P. Pettruchione’s book “Theory of open quantum systems”).
  •  Basic but solid skills in usual mathematical subjects: linear algebra, ordinary and partial differential equations, probability theory, stochastic processes, and in usual physical subjects: electrodynamics, quantum mechanics, statistical physics.
