Transient synchronization in open quantum systems
Giorgi, Gian Luca; Cabot, Albert; Zambrini, Roberta
The phenomenon of spontaneous synchronization arises in a broad range of systems when the mutual interaction strength among components overcomes the effect of detuning. Recently it has been studied also in the quantum regime with a variety of approaches and in different dynamical contexts. We review here transient synchronization
arising during the relaxation of open quantum systems, describing the common enabling mechanism in presence of either local or global dissipation. We address both networks of harmonic oscillators and spins and compare different synchronization measures.
