Title: Fully coupled Pauli-Fierz systems at zero and positive temperature

These notes provide an introduction to the spectral analysis of Pauli-Fierz systems at zero and positive temperature. More precisely, we study finite dimensional quantum systems linearly coupled to a single reservoir, a massless scalar quantum field. We emphasize structure results valid at arbitrary system-reservoir coupling strength. The notes contain a mixture of known, refined, and new results and each section ends with a discussion of open problems.
