ARO Workshop on Quantum Control

May 13 & 14, 2021

8 am to 12 pm PDT / 11 am to 3 pm EDT

The goal of this workshop is to have an interchange between theory and experimental experts interested in control of quantum systems such as spintronics and related, and control theory in the context of classical and quantum networks. Classical control theory (of dynamical systems) is a well-developed subject, with powerful tools such as Lyapunov stability, perturbation theory, control of chaos, etc., with wide ranging applications from machines to electronics to networks. This workshop’s high-level objective is to assess and discuss what a formal subject of quantum control theory does and/or should look like, and if there are ideas one could borrow from classical control while developing new mathematical principles that are unique to the control of quantum systems.
