Paper Abstract

Methods for quantifying environmentally induced decoherence in quantum systems are investigated. We formulate criteria for measuring the degree of decoherence and consider several representative examples, including a spin interacting with the modes of a bosonic, e.g., phonon, bath. We formulate an approach based on the operator norm measuring the deviation of the actual density matrix from the ideal one which would describe the system without environmental interactions.
