Call for Papers - E. C. G. Sudarshan issue 2021

Articles for the E. C. G. Sudarshan issue 2021 dedicated to stochastic dynamics of open quantum systems will be considered if submitted before August 31, 2021.

The theory of open quantum systems has become fundamental in addressing questions on the foundations of quantum mechanics as well as in the new quantum revolution aiming at the creation of quantum computers. The most general dynamical equation of an open quantum system was presented in a remarkable paper by E. C. G. Sudarshan, P. M. Mathews, and J. Rau, entitled "Stochastic dynamics of quantum mechanical systems", published in Physical Review 1961; 121: 920-924. However, this pioneering work did not receive enough attention from the community at the time. The 2021 special issue of Quanta is devoted to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Sudarshan's paper. To this aim, we invite the submission of research papers, as well as tutorial articles on various aspects of open quantum systems.
