Lindblad equation approach for the the energy fluctuations in driven quantum systems

Recent progress in experimental techniques provides a possibility to study dissipative dynamics of mesoscopic and even quantum systems where fluctuations play a significant role. Unlike for classical systems, the statistics of work is still not well established in the quantum regime. We formulate the generalized master
equation approach with the dissipative part in the Lindblad form to calculate the statistics of work and heat produced by driven quantum systems interacting with a thermal bath. We apply this approach to derive general fluctuation relations and consider several generic examples. First, we demonstrate a crucial difference between the statistics of work and heat in a driven single qubit system. Second, we show that the statistics of dissipated heat can indicate the presence of non-zero entanglement in the driven system of two coupled qubits.
