Abstract

We propose a quantum collision model in which the environment is abstractively divided into two hierarchies including “environment-bus” that has direct interactions with the system and “environment-stations” that has not. Based on the model, we investigate the effects of initial system–environment correlations, initial states of environment, and various interactions on the dynamics of open quantum systems associated genuinely with such a hierarchical environment. We illustrate that the initial quantum correlation between the system and environment leads to a transition from Markovian to non-Markovian dynamics, while for initial classical correlation the transition can only be confirmed to happen when the couplings rather than the correlations in environment are present. In addition, we investigate the degree of non-Markovianity varying with environment initial states and reveal that the interaction strength between two environmental hierarchies plays an important role in it. In particular, we show that in such a hierarchically structured environment the degree of non-Markovianity is not equivalent to memory effects of the environment-stations as a reservoir due to the presence of the environment-bus.
