The computer simulations of quantum control use several approaches including local tracking procedures that prescribe the controlling field through the requirement that a certain functional be decreasing and monotonic algorithms that solve the Euler-Lagrange equations for a predefined cost functional. While different in implementation, recent works [1] hinted that these two classes share some common characteristics. We propose in this contribution a rigorous ground for such conclusions and… CONTINUE READING
