In this thesis we investigate the interplay between dissipation and driving in nonlinear quantum systems for a special setup: a flux qubit read out by a DC-SQUID - a nonlinear quantum oscillator. The latter is embedded in a harmonic bath, thereby mediating dissipation to the qubit. Two different approaches are elaborated: First we consider a composite qubit-SQUID system and add the bath afterwards. We derive analytical expressions for its eigenstates beyond rotating wave approximation (RWA), bydoi:10.5283/epub.20157 fatcat:24jwvw5u3ndvvi25ssdaofqusq
