Tensor network methods for non-Markovian open quantum systems: Report

This meeting recognised recent progress in a variety of approaches to describe the dynamic of systems coupled to realistic environments, for which Markovian approaches fail.  In particular, several methods have been developed that provide or make use of a tensor network representation of the “process tensor”, an object that contains the information required to predict…
