Introduction to Quantum Control and Dynamicsby Domenico D'alessandro
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:The introduction of control theory in quantum mechanics has created a rich, new interdisciplinary scientific field, which is producing novel insight into important theoretical questions at the heart of quantum physics. Exploring this emerging subject, Introduction to Quantum Control and Dynamics presents the mathematical concepts and fundamental physics behind the analysis and control of quantum dynamics, emphasizing the application of Lie algebra and Lie group theory.
After introducing the basics of quantum mechanics, the book derives a class of models for quantum control systems from fundamental physics. It examines the controllability and observability of quantum systems and the related problem of quantum state determination and measurement. The author also uses Lie group decompositions as tools to analyze dynamics and to design control algorithms. In addition, he describes various other control methods and discusses topics in quantum information theory that include entanglement and entanglement dynamics. The final chapter covers the implementation of quantum control and dynamics in several fields. Armed with the basics of quantum control and dynamics, readers will invariably use this interdisciplinary knowledge in their mathematical, physics, and engineering work.

After an explanation of basics of quantum mechanics, he derives a class of models for quantum control systems from fundamental physics, and uses it to describe experimental situations. He then examines the controllability and observability of quantum systems and the related problem of quantum state determination and measurement. He also uses Lie group decompositions as tools to analyze dynamics and to design control algorithms. He also describes various other control methods and discusses topics in quantum information theory. Applications are given in areas such as nuclear magnetic resonance experiments and implementations of quantum information. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Synopsis:Introduction to Quantum Control and Dynamics presents the foundations of analysis and control of quantum dynamics from the point of view of Lie algebra and Lie group theory. Emphasizing mathematical concepts along with practical physics and engineering applications, the book begins with a review of quantum dynamics for readers who have not yet been exposed to the topic. It provides detailed descriptions of various models for quantum control systems including STIRAP methods and Lypunov control. The book also covers the concepts of Lie algebra, Lie group theory, Lie transformation groups, and Lie group decompositions and examines the observability and controllability of quantum systems.
