Decoherence, Continuous Measurement and the Quantum-Classical Transition - Shohini Ghose

This will be a review talk outlining the evolution of decoherence theory, its connection to the measurement problem and the quantum-classical transition and the main theoretical and experimental results. I will also present the quantum trajectory approach to modelling continuous measurements and unravelling the master equation that describes a system undergoing decoherence, and how the transition from classical to quantum dynamics can occur in such systems.
