Dissipative and non-Markovian generalization of the CSL model of spontaneous wave function collapse

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The first goal to the research is to generalize the CSL collapse model in order to include dissipative effects. This will be achieved by coupling the noise field to the momentum operator, besides to the position operator. The second goal is to generalize the CSL model to non-Markovian noises. This will be achieved by replacing the white-noise field with a colored noise field. In both cases, after suitable evolution equations are written down, their main properties will be analyzed. In particular, the amplification mechanics needs to be checked, as well as the novel features of the models. The third goal is to compare the predictions of the new models against those of standard quantum mechanics. In particular, computations will be done with reference to matter-wave experiments. When possible, the equations will be solved exactly, otherwise approximate/numerical schemes will be employed.
