In science:

As explained in the abstract, we substantiate the claim that this expression converges to an asymptotic value, as t → ∞. i.e. hOit → hOi∞ and that hOi∞ is independent of Ψ0 .
Approach to ground state and time-independent photon bound for massless spin-boson models
We prove the convergence to an asymptotic value, hOit → hOi∞ not by spectral considerations, but by exhibiting explicitly the irreversible density matrix evolution |Ψ0 ihΨ0 | → |Ψt ihΨt |.
Approach to ground state and time-independent photon bound for massless spin-boson models
If H is too infrared-singular to admit a ground state, then the convergence hOit → hOi∞ can still hold provided that the observable O ’does not see’ the low-energetic photons.
Approach to ground state and time-independent photon bound for massless spin-boson models
The dynamic equation for G can be derived, as before, from the Liouville equation i¯h∂t hOit = h[O, H ]it , where O is now to be replaced by the respective products of field operators Φa (x).
