Abstract

In this communication we want to discuss the dynamical effects of the coupling between a quantum system and the environment in the framework of Quantum Field Theory (QFT).

Keywords

Reaction Field Canonical Commutation Relation Group Contraction Spontaneous Breakdown Canonical Commutation Relation 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
