Approximate Dynamics Lead to More Optimal Control: Efficient Exact Derivatives
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, and unlocks efficient optimization of many-body dynamics operating in the unprecedented high-fidelity regime.

Adaptive hybrid optimal quantum control for imprecisely characterized systems.
This work combines open- and closed-loop optimal control by first performing a gradient search towards a near-optimal control pulse and then an experimental fidelity estimation with a gradient-free method, making optimal control theory applicable and useful. Expand
Monotonically convergent optimization in quantum control using Krotov's method.
It is demonstrated that for the "standard" quantum control problem of a convex final-time functional, linear equations of motion and linear dependency of the Hamiltonian on the field, the second-order contribution is not required for monotonic convergence but can be used to speed up convergence.
