We give a short introduction to the rigorous mathematical
theory of open quantum systems with focus on the nonequilibrium
situation. In the first lecture, we briefly present the general
theory in its algebraic framework, i.e. the socalled scattering and
spectral approaches to nonequilibrium steady states (NESS).
