Reduced dynamics of coupled harmonic and anharmonic oscillators using higherorder perturbation theory
Abstract
Several techniques to solve a hierarchical set of equations of motion for propagating a reduced density matrix coupled to a thermal bath have been developed in recent years. This is either done using the path integral technique as in the original proposal by Tanimura and Kubo [J. Phys. Soc. Jpn. 58, 101 (1998)] or by the use of stochastic fields as done by Yan et al. [Chem. Phys. Lett. 395, 216 (2004)]. Based on the latter ansatz a compact derivation of the hierarchy using a decomposition of the spectral density function is given in the present contribution. The method is applied to calculate the time evolution of the reduced density matrix describing the motion in a harmonic, an anharmonic, and two coupled oscillators where each system is coupled to a thermal bath. Calculations to several orders in the systembath coupling with two different truncations of the hierarchy are performed. The respective density matrices are used to calculate the time evolution of various system properties and the results are compared and discussed with a special focus on the convergence with respect to the truncation scheme applied.

Twostep approach to the dynamics of coupled anharmonic oscillators
We have further extended the twostep approach developed by Chung and Chew [N. N. Chung and L. Y. Chew, Phys. Rev. A 76, 032113 (2007)] to the solution of the quantum dynamics of general systems of Ncoupled anharmonic oscillators. The idea is to employ an optimized basis set to represent the dynamical quantum states of these oscillator systems. The set is generated via the action of the optimized Bogoliubov transformed bosonic operators on the optimal squeezed vacuum product state. The procedure requires (i) applying the twostep approach to the eigendecomposition of the time evolution operator and (ii) transforming the representationmore » 
REACTOR PERTURBATION THEORY OF HIGHER ORDER AND THE ACCURACY RANGE OF THE PERTURBATION THEORY OF THE FIRST ORDER IN THE TREATMENT OF CAVITIES (in German)
The perturbation theory of the first order previously described (Nukleonik 1, 265(1959)), which is derived from the multigroup collision equation and by a consequent carrying out of the P/sub 1/ approximation permitted the treatment of cavities, is expanded to a perturbation theory of higher order. The peculiarities occurring in cavities in higher order are discussed. The accuracy range of the perturbation theory of the first order was estimated with the theory of the second order on two examples. (trauth) 
Multipseudoparticles and perturbation theory in large order of the anharmonic oscillator
Multipseudoparticles are included in a calculation of the groundstate energy of the anharmonic oscillator in large orders of perturbation theory. Their inclusion verifies a conjecture of Langer and results in a partition function that reproduced the BenderWu result.
