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)
— 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)
— This note presents an example of bilinear conservative system in an infinite dimensional Hilbert space for which approximate controllability in the Hilbert unit sphere holds for arbitrary small times. This situation is in contrast with the finite dimensional case and is due to the unboundedness of the drift operator.
— 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)
— This paper is concerned with the controllability of quantum systems in the case where the standard dipolar approximation, involving the permanent dipole moment of the system, has to be corrected by a so-called polarizability term, involving the field induced dipole moment. Sufficient conditions for controllability between eigenstates of the free… (More)
