Dynamics of a four-well system interacting with a dissipative environment Dubé, Martin


The dynamics of sytems that can be mapped to a four-well problem in the presence of a dissipative environment is examined. The probabilities of finding the systems in one of the four state as a function of time are found in the limit of overdamped oscillations. Also in this limit, the time evolution of the density matrix of a four-well system is found. The diagonals elements are then rederived by considering an infinite chain of wells.
