Abstract

We derive quantum kinetic equations describing a system of interacting polaritons relaxing the Markovian approximation. We demonstrate the crucial role played by the nonclassical four-particle correlators in the dynamics. The decoherence process is shown to be responsible for the transition from the quantum limit to the classical limit. The general formalism is applied to the description of the dynamics of the polariton parametric oscillator. It allows accounting self-consistently for both signal-idler correlations and pump depletion.
