The standard theoretical descriptions of the dynamics of open quantum systems rely on the assumption that the correlations with the environment can be neglected at some reference (initial) time. While being reasonable in specific instances, such as when the coupling between the system and the environment is weak or when the interaction starts at a distinguished time, the use of initially uncorrelated states is questionable if one wants to deal with general models, taking into account the mutual… Expand

Information backflow may not indicate quantum memory

- Computer Science, Physics

It is pointed out that the well-known criterion of information backflow may not correctly report character of the memory falsely signaling its quantumness, and several concepts of elementary dynamical maps are proposed, as a complement to theWell-known criteria. Expand
