Exact Solutions for Decoherence Problems
Quantum decoherence problems are usually solved by perturbation
theory or numerical computation. There are few examples of interesting
exactly solvable models. D. Nghiem, B. Cheng, QH. Wang and I have
discovered some of these models and have been exploring their properties.
We first noticed that models with random noise at predictable intervals
were solvable, and have recently extended this to the more interesting case
of telegraph noise.
