Quantum memory effects in a two-level system

This paper explores the quantum Mpemba effect, where hotter quantum systems can relax faster than colder ones, in a two-level quantum system. It shows how exceptional points and complex eigenvalues in the system's dynamics can lead to multiple intersections between relaxing trajectories, a phenomenon called multiple quantum Mpemba effects.
