Accurate derivatives are important for efficiently locally traversing and converging in quantum optimization landscapes. By deriving analytically exact control derivatives (gradient and Hessian), it is shown here that the feasibility of meeting this central accuracy requirement critically depends on the choice of propagation scheme and problem representation. Even when exact propagation is sufficiently cheap it is, perhaps surprisingly, much more efficient to optimize the (appropriately… Expand

Achieving fast high-fidelity control of many-body dynamics
This work applies recent state-of-the-art optimal control techniques to a challenging many-body problem: driving the superfluid-Mott insulator transition in an optical lattice, and observes a characteristic, exponential dependence for the fidelity across several orders of magnitude. Expand
