dc.description.abstractIf one continuously measures a decaying system, the system will appear to never decay that was called quantum Zeno effect. The continuous measurement is defined by a sequence of measurements whose time interval t between measurements approaches zero. Later many works chose the time interval t as finite (and greater than the Zeno time) which corresponds to making equal spaced measurements over a discrete time interval. With the discrete variable formulism one can derive the so-called Anti-Zeno effect. Our study is trying to contrast the results between continuous time interval measurement versus discrete time interval measurement. We demonstrate that we can obtain so-called “Zeno” and “Anti-Zeno” in a classical system if we apply the definition of non-ideal measurement.
