Quantum correlations in bipartite quantum systems
In this lecture, I will discuss how quantum correlations present initially in a bipartite quantum system are affected when the system is coupled to its environment. I will introduce the notions of entanglement and nonclassicality for mixed states in a quantum system composed of two subsystems. I will review some quantities commonly used to measure quantum correlations in such systems: the entanglement of formation, concurrence, quantum discord, and geometric measures based on the Bures distance. If time remains, I will describe the evolution of these measures for two qubits coupled either to independent baths or to ! a common bath, by using some simple markovian models. I will show that, if the dynamics is given by quantum trajectories corresponding to local measurements on the two indepen- dent baths, then the mean concurrence of the qubits decreases exponentially, despite the fact that the 2-qubit density matrix may become separable after a finite time.
