Universal approach to quantum thermodynamics of strongly coupled systems under nonequilibrium conditions and external driving

14 Mar 2020 Dou Wenjie Bätge Jakob Levy Amikam Thoss Michael

We present an approach based on a density matrix expansion to study thermodynamic properties of a quantum system strongly coupled to two or more baths. For slow external driving of the system, we identify the adiabatic and nonadiabatic contributions to thermodynamic quantities, and we show how the first and second laws of thermodynamics are manifested in the strong coupling regime...
