Path Integral Approach to Quantum Thermodynamics

Volume: 121, Issue: 4
Published: Jul 26, 2018
Work belongs to the most basic notions in thermodynamics but it is not well understood in quantum systems, especially in open quantum systems. By introducing a novel concept of the work functional along an individual Feynman path, we invent a new approach to study thermodynamics in the quantum regime. Using the work functional, we derive a path integral expression for the work statistics. By performing the \ensuremath{\hbar}expansion, we...
