Despite the weakly interacting regime, the physics of Bose–Einstein condensates is widely affected by particle–particle interactions. They determine quantum phase diffusion, which is known to be the main cause of loss of coherence. Studying a simple model of two interacting Bose systems, we show how to predict the appearance of phase diffusion beyond the Bogoliubov approximation, providing a self-...

Quantum Reservoir Computing (QRC) exploits the information processing capabilities of quantum systems to solve non-trivial temporal tasks, improving over their classical counterparts. Recent progress has shown the potential of QRC exploiting the enlarged Hilbert space, but real-time processing and the achievement of a quantum advantage with efficient use of resources are prominent challenges towar...

Algorithms for associative memory typically rely on a network of many connected units. The prototypical example is the Hopfield model, whose generalizations to the quantum realm are mainly based on open quantum Ising models. We propose a realization of associative memory with a single driven-dissipative quantum oscillator exploiting its infinite degrees of freedom in phase space. The model can imp...

Quantum machine learning represents a promising avenue for data processing, also for purposes of sequential temporal data analysis, as recently proposed in quantum reservoir computing (QRC). The possibility to operate on several platforms and noise intermediate-scale quantum devices makes QRC a timely topic. A challenge that has not been addressed yet, however, is how to efficiently include quantu...

We introduce the multipartite collision model, defined in terms of elementary interactions between subsystems and ancillas, and show that it can simulate the Markovian dynamics of any multipartite open quantum system. We develop a method to estimate an analytical error bound for any repeated interactions model, and we use it to prove that the error of our scheme displays an optimal scaling. Finall...

We discuss how to calculate genuine multipartite quantum and classical correlations in symmetric, spatially invariant, mixed $n$-qubit density matrices. We show that the existence of symmetries greatly reduces the amount of free parameters to be optimized in order to find the optimal measurement that minimizes the conditional entropy in the discord calculation. We apply this approach to the states...

Under the Born--Markov approximation, a qubit system, such as a two-level atom, is known to undergo a memoryless decay of quantum coherence or excitation when weakly coupled to a featureless environment. Recently, it has been shown that unavoidable disorder in the environment is responsible for non-Markovian effects and information backflow from the environment into the system owing to Anderson lo...

We study the paradigmatic model of a qubit interacting with a structured environment and driven by an external field by means of a microscopic and a phenomenological model. The validity of the so-called fixed-dissipator (FD) assumption, where the dissipation is taken as the one of the undriven qubit is discussed. In the limit of a flat spectrum, the FD model and the microscopic one remarkably prac...

Heisenberg-type spin models in the limit of a low number of excitations are useful tools to study basic mechanisms in strongly correlated and magnetic systems. Many of these mechanisms can be experimentally tested using ultracold atoms. Here, we discuss the implementation of a quantum state transfer protocol in a tight-binding chain in the presence of an inhomogeneous external potential. We show t...

The role played by quantum discord in mixed-state computation is widely debated since, in spite of evidence of its importance in creating quantum advantages, even in the absence of entanglement, there are not direct proofs of its necessity in these computational tasks. Recently the presence of discord was shown to be necessary and sufficient for remote state preparation for a broad class of quantu...
