Quantum tunneling with dissipative coupling

Eliade Stefanescu


This chapter is devoted to quantum tunneling, as a basic quantum process, essential for important applications. Tunneling between two wells, of the double well potential of a one particle system of interest, makes sense only when a second system, capable to distinguish between the presence of the particle in a well, or in the other well, is present. The potential of interaction between such two systems is called tunneling operator. We treat a few problems of interest as tunneling in a quasi-continuum of states, the energy shift in a well by the proximity of another well, dissipation effects, and tunneling spectrum.
