Authors: Zueco, David; Garcia-Ripoll, Juanjo Contribution: Article Journal: PHYSICAL REVIEW A Publication date: 2019/01/03 DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevA.99.013807 Abstract: We discuss both the spectrum and the dynamics of cavity QED in the presence of dissipation beyond the standard perturbative treatment of losses. Using the dynamical polaron ansatz and matrix-product state simulations, we discuss the case where both light-matter [...]

Authors: Valido, Antonio A. Contribution: Article Journal: PHYSICAL REVIEW D Publication date: 2019/01/03 DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevD.99.016003 Abstract: Conventional Brownian motion in harmonic systems has provided a deep understanding of a great diversity of dissipative phenomena. We address a rather fundamental microscopic description for the (linear) dissipative dynamics of two-dimensional harmonic oscillators that contains the conventional Brownian motion [...]
