In this article, we propose a Lyapunov stability approach to analyze the convergence of the density operator of a quantum system. In contrast to many previously studied convergence analysis methods for invariant density operators which use weak convergence, in this article we analyze the convergence of density operators by considering the set of density operators as a Banach space. We show that the set of invariant density operators is both closed and convex, which implies the impossibility of…

Convergence to pure steady states of linear quantum systems

This work gives compact and intuitive necessary and sufficient conditions for single-mode linear quantum systems to have pure Gaussian steady states in terms of the Hamiltonian and coupling operators.

Quantum Switch Realization by the Quantum Lyapunov Control

The quantum Lyapunov control scheme is presented which implements a quantum switch (it can be used as a part of future quantum networks), however, this implementation is not based on a quantum gates circuit and directly concerns the spins of the qubits which realize the quantum switch operation.



Analysis of Lyapunov Method for Control of Quantum States

This analysis shows that a generic target state is locally asymptotically stable if the linearized system is controllable and the invariant set is regular, and in fact convergence to the target state (trajectory) in this case is almost global in that the stable manifolds of all other critical points form a subset of measure zero of the state space.

Heisenberg Picture Approach to the Stability of Quantum Markov Systems

Quantum Markovian systems, modeled as unitary dilations in the quantum stochastic calculus of Hudson and Parthasarathy, have become standard in current quantum technological applications. This paper

Control of Linear Quantum Stochastic Systems

The purpose of this paper is to formulate and solve a H?controller synthesis problem for a class of non-commutative linear stochastic systems which includes many examples of interest in quantum

Quantum Markovian Subsystems: Invariance, Attractivity, and Control

The stronger concept of an attractive quantum subsystem is introduced, and sufficient existence conditions are identified based on Lyapunov's stability techniques, and explicit results for the synthesis of stabilizing semigroups and noiseless subspaces in finite-dimensional Markovian systems are obtained.

On the existence of stationary states for quantum dynamical semigroups

We provide two criteria on the existence of stationary states for quantum dynamical semigroups. The first one is based on the semigroup itself, while the second criterion is based on the generator

Quantum Markov Semigroups and their Stationary States

The notion of a Quantum Markov Semigroup (QMS) is an extension of classical Markov semigroups motivated by the study of open quantum systems. Indeed, a number of physicists interested in open quantum

Approximate stabilization of an infinite dimensional quantum stochastic system

It is proved that a feedback scheme that minimizes the expectation value of the Lyapunov function at each time step stabilizes the system at the desired photon number state with (a pre-specified) arbitrarily high probability.

The interaction of the plant and a class of external systems, called exosystems, is described in terms of feedback networks of interconnected open quantum systems, which implements J.C. Willems' “control by interconnection” foropen quantum systems.
