A rigorous derivation of the transition rate for the dissipative
two-state system

Marco Merkli, Haifeng Song
The transition rate for a two-state system interacting with a bosonic heat bath, from the initial state `up' at time t=0 to `down' at time t>0, was derived formally in the seminal paper [12] by Leggett, Chakravarty, Dorsey, Fisher, Garg and Zwerger. The expression was obtained for small tunneling parameter of the two-level system using time-dependent perturbation theory to second order. It contains all orders in the parameter of coupling between the system and the bath. We give a rigorous derivation of the transition rate, using a quantum resonance approach.
