In this paper we prove an approximate controllability result for the bilinear Schrödinger equation. This result requires less restrictive non-resonance hypotheses on the spectrum of the uncontrolled Schrödinger operator than those present in the literature. The control operator is not required to be bounded and we are able to extend the controllability(More)
Weakly-coupled systems are a class of infinite dimensional conservative bilinear control systems with discrete spectrum. A property of these systems is that they can be precisely approached by finite dimensional Galerkin approximations. This feature is of particular interest for the approximation of quantum system dynamics and the control of the bilinear(More)
Starting with the seminal papers of Reynolds (1987), Vicsek et. al. (1995) Cucker-Smale (2007), there has been a flood of recent works on models of self-alignment and consensus dynamics. Selforganization has been so far the main driving concept of this research direction. However, the evidence that in practice self-organization does not necessarily occur(More)
From a mathematical point of view self-organization can be described as patterns to which certain dynamical systems modeling social dynamics tend spontaneously to be attracted. In this paper we explore situations beyond self-organization, in particular how to externally control such dynamical systems in order to eventually enforce pattern formation also in(More)
This article is mainly based on the work [7], and it is dedicated to the 60th anniversary of B. Bonnard, held in Dijon in June 2012. We focus on a controlled Cucker–Smale model in finite dimension. Such dynamics model self-organization and consensus emergence in a group of agents. We explore how it is possible to control this model in order to enforce or(More)
— We provide bounds on the error between dynamics of an infinite dimensional bilinear Schrödinger equation and of its finite dimensional Galerkin approximations. Standard averaging methods are used on the finite dimensional approximations to obtain constructive controllability results. As an illustration, the methods are applied on a model of a 2D rotating(More)
We present a sufficient condition for approximate controllability of the bilinear discrete-spectrum Schrödinger equation exploiting the use of several controls. The controllability result extends to simultaneous controllability, approximate controllability in H s , and tracking in modulus. The result is more general than those present in the literature even(More)
This paper presents an energy estimate in terms of the total variation of the control for bilinear infinite dimensional quantum systems with unbounded potentials. These estimates allow a rigorous construction of propagators associated with controls of bounded variation. Moreover, upper bounds of the error made when replacing the infinite dimensional system(More)
— In this paper we study the error in the approximate simultaneous controllability of the bilinear Schrödinger equation. We provide estimates based on a tracking algorithm for general bilinear quantum systems and on the study of the finite dimensional Galerkin approximations for a particular class of quantum systems, weakly-coupled systems. We then present(More)
