Bogdan Mielnik: Contributions to Quantum Control

Conference paper
Part of the Trends in Mathematics book series (TM)


In this article two main aspects of quantum control, which require basically different mathematical techniques will be addressed. In the first one the systems are characterized by stationary Hamiltonians, while in the second they are ruled by time-dependent ones. Both trends were initiated in Mexico by Bogdan Mielnik, who has played a central role in the development of a research group on quantum control at Cinvestav.
