Paper Abstract

We show that the general quantum master equation used in quantum optics can be put in the form of Lindblad’s master equation obtained in the frame of the general theory of the dynamical semigroups. In this case, the dissipative interaction is described in the most general form by a system of openness parameters. We find the expressions of these parameters as functions of the operators of the dissipative environment.
