In this entry we discuss a symbolic tool for describing the interconnection of open quantum systems using boson fields. The tool called the series product is expressed in terms of physical parameters. Boson fields, such as free quantum optical fields, serve as “wires” connecting components. The framework is general and allows for the description of networks consisting of quantum and classical components in a consistent and unified manner.
