Oscillator bath simulation of the spin bath

Open quantum systems are subject to interaction with their surrounding environment. In many applications, at low temperatures, quantum environments fall into two universality classes of models: Caldeira-Leggett oscillator bath models and Prokof'ev-Stamp spin bath models... The two classes are commonly recognized to be distinct and to have strikingly different effects on principal systems, except at weak coupling limits. However, I show here, in contrast, that oscillator bath models can simulate the effect of spin bath models in strong coupling limit of the spin bath. I choose parameters of the oscillator bath models such that they produce incoherent relaxation, just as in the spin bath models, with relaxation rates for a two-state system (a qubit) equivalent to those of the spin bath models in the strong coupling limit. read more
