We derive Bloch-type equations of motion for the Wigner function of a qubit nonlinearly coupled to a linear oscillator, and investigate their application to the quantum-classical transition.

    A nonlinear beam splitter is shown to be an interesting object of investigation for the following reasons. First, the classical and quantum theories of its description give directly opposite behaviors of the phase fluctuations: according to the classical theory, the phase is unchanged; according...

    In classical mechanics, discrete breathers (DBs) - a spatial time-periodic localization of energy - are predicted in a large variety of nonlinear systems. Motivated by a conceptual bridging of the DB phenomena in classical and quantum mechanical representations, we study their signatures in the...

    We investigate the quantum Fisher information in the symmetric pure three-qubit state. It is shown that the quantum Fisher information and the mean spin direction are determined by the probability amplitudes and the relative phase of the symmetric pure three-qubit state; while the length of mean...
