Majorana fermions of 1D wires are a hot topic, which is motivated by the interest to use topology as a way to make quantum systems robust against microscopic imperfections. However, it has been shown that quantum correlations between Majorana states will rapidly decay when the system is coupled to a Markovian bath, even when it preserves parity [1, 2]. Here we go beyond the Markovian approximation and study the dynamics of Majorana edge correlation in the presence of dissipation. Taking the example of an ideal Kitaev chain coupled to a phonon bath, we derive a second-order perturbative polaron master equation. We find that the inclusion of a memory kernel can lead to significant suppression of the decoherence of Majorana edge correlations, thanks to the time-dependent system correlations counteracting the dissipation effect in the weak coupling regime. Moreover, we find that the presence of a next-to-nearest-neighbour interaction can provide an additional mechanism for stabilizing the edge correlations.
