Quantum Statistical Mechanics. IV. NonEquilibrium Probability Operator and Stochastic, Dissipative Schrodinger Equation
Abstract
The probability operator for a generic nonequilibrium quantum system is derived. The corresponding stochastic, dissipative Schrödinger equation is also given. The dissipative and stochastic propagators are linked by the fluctuationdissipation theorem that is derived from the unitary condition on the time propagator. The dissipative propagator is derived from thermodynamic force and entropy fluctuation operators that are in general nonlinear.
