Open Quantum System, Linblad equation and decoherence in Quantum Mechanics
We will study a two levels atomic system in an external electromagnetic field using open quantum system and obtaining a master equation of the Linblad type. We will solve the equation and compare to the results of time dependent perturbation theory. We will use these results to study Lindblad Decoherence in Atomic Clocks (Steve Weinberg Phys. Rev. A 94, 042117 (2016). Such results can be generalized to considering in the same framework a chromoelectric dipole interaction between quarkonium color octet and singlet states in QCD, the theory of strong interaction and can describe the nonequilibrium evolution of quarkonium in heavy ion collsions at experiments at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.

Quarkonium at non-zero isospin density
We study the change of quarkonium bound states energies in the presence of a medium of nonzero isospin density using results from Lattice QCD and Effective field theories and solving the Schroedinger equation with the corresponding potentials. We will investigate how the medium induces a reduction of the quarkonium energies and if the reduction of the quarkonium energies becomes more pronounced as the heavy-quark mass is decreased, similar to the behaviour seen in two-colour QCD at non-zero quark chemical potential. In the process of our analysis, we will study the eta_b-pi and Upsilon-π scattering phase shifts are determined at low momentum. These findings are relevant for experiments at FAIR in Fermany and at the future Electron Ion Collider in US. Prerequisites: Quantum Mechanics I and II
