This paper is intended to provide the reader with a review of the authors’ latest results dealing with the modeling of quantum dissipation/diffusion effects at the level of Schrödinger systems, in connection with the corresponding phase space and fluid formulations of such kind of phenomena, especially in what concerns the role of the Fokker–Planck mechanism in the description of open quantum systems and the macroscopic dynamics associated with some viscous hydrodynamic models of Euler and Navier–Stokes...

We investigate the spectral distribution of the damped wave equation on a compact Riemannian manifold, especially in the case of a metric of negative curvature, for which the geodesic flow is Anosov. The main application is to obtain conditions (in terms of the geodesic flow on $X$ and the damping function) for which the energy of the waves decays exponentially fast, at least for smooth enough initial data. We review various estimates for the high frequency spectrum in terms of dynamically defined...
