Foundations of Quantum Mechanics: Lecture 10
3. The measurement process;
3.1 Basic features (Stern-Gerlach example, "quantum eraser", irreversibility, example of photon-detection in the human eye)
(continued with Lindblad equations) Application to harmonic oscillator. Pure dephasing. Bloch equations for a dissipative two-level system. T1 and T2 times. Expression of decay rates via quantum noise spectra. Some comments on the general structure of Lindblad master equations, especially for numerical solutions.
