|Abstract:||Equilibrium canonical distribution in statistical mechanics assumes weak system-bath coupling (SBC). In real physical situations this assumption can be invalid, and equilibrium quantum statistics of the system may be noncanonical. By exploiting both polaron transformation and perturbation theory in a spin-boson model, an analytical treatment is advocated to study noncanonical statistics of a two-level system at arbitrary temperature and for arbitrary SBC strength, yielding theoretical results in agreement with exact Monte Carlo simulations. In particular, the eigen-representation of system's reduced density matrix is used to quantify noncanonical statistics as well as the quantumness of the open system. For example, it is found that irrespective of SBC strength, noncanonical statistics enhances as temperature decreases but vanishes at high temperature. © 2012 American Physical Society.|
