In this PHD thesis, I address the study of the evolution of quantum correlations of continuous variable systems interacting with classical environments, portrayed by classical stochastic fields. In particular, the first goal is individuating the working regimes where a full quantum description of the system-environment interaction may be simulated with a stochastic approach. As a paradigmatic example, I consider quantum harmonic oscillators subject to phase diffusion and dissipation decoherence. My results show that the stochastic noise may take over the full quantum description of Markovian dephasing channels, while a stochastic approach to dissipation only works at a high temperature in the early stage of the dynamics. The second goal consists in better exploring the connection between the dynamics of correlations of the system, non-Markovianity and backflow of information. In many situations non-Markovianity cannot be proved but only revealed by means of appropriate witnesses, usually associated to backflow of information. My results show that stochastic phase diffusing and stochastic dissipative environments lead to non-Markovian dynamics, but their non-Markovianity stays unwitnessed unless revivals of correlations as nonclassicality, entanglement or discord are detected. This suggests that non-Markovianity sets the natural framework for revivals of correlations, but the true resource to obtain revivals is the backflow of information. The third goal consists in showing that effects of local or global noise on a bipartite system may easily be distinguished by means of standard laboratory techniques. Indeed, my results show that homodyne-detection-based schemes may discriminate the effects of a global stochastic noise affecting two probes from local perturbation, using as states of the probe “lab-friendly” states.
