      Quantum Simulation of Dissipative Processes without Reservoir Engineering 

      Di Candia, Roberto; Simón Pedernales, Julen Jon; Del Campo, Adolfo; Solano Villanueva, Enrique Leónidas; Casanova Marcos, Jorge (Nature Publishing Group, 2015-05-29)
      We present a quantum algorithm to simulate general finite dimensional Lindblad master equations without the requirement of engineering the system-environment interactions. The proposed method is able to simulate both ...
