Third-party-funded project

Controllability and Optimal Control of Interacting Quantum Dynamical Systems (COCIQ)

Project management at the University of Würzburg:

Participating scientists:

The goal to achieve full control on complex, high?dimensional quantum systems in an optimal manner poses new challenges for system and control theory. The issue is of paramount importance for the development of future key technologies, such as quantum computing, quantum communication and the manipulation of nanosystems. New challenges arise if the interaction structure is fully taken into account to enable new control strategies. This research project aims at achieving a fundamental understanding of controllability properties and optimal control strategies for finite?dimensional interacting quantum dynamical systems, where structural properties arising from the global tensor product structure of the state spaces will play a crucial role. Our methods will combine techniques from nonlinear control, Lie group theory, and optimal control on function spaces.
