A shortcut to adiabaticity is a recipe for generating adiabatic evolution at an arbitrary pace. Shortcuts have been developed for quantum, classical and (most recently) stochastic dynamics. A shortcut might involve a counterdiabatic (CD) Hamiltonian that causes a system to follow the adiabatic evolution at all times, or it might utilize a fast-forward (FF) potential, which returns the system to the adiabatic path at the end of the process. We develop a general framework for constructing…

Shortcuts to adiabaticity assisted by counterdiabatic Born–Oppenheimer dynamics
Shortcuts to adiabaticity (STA) provide control protocols to guide the dynamics of a quantum system through an adiabatic reference trajectory in an arbitrary prescheduled time. Designing STA proves
Time-Rescaling of Dirac Dynamics: Shortcuts to Adiabaticity in Ion Traps and Weyl Semimetals
This work shows how time-rescaling can be applied to Dirac dynamics, and it is shown that all time-dependence can be absorbed into the effective potentials through a judiciously chosen unitary transformation.
Counter-diabatic driving in the classical $\beta$-Fermi-Pasta-Ulam-Tsingou chain
Shortcuts to adiabaticity (STAs) have been used to make rapid changes to a system while eliminating or minimizing excitations in the system’s state. In quantum systems, these shortcuts allow us to

Shortcuts to adiabaticity (STA) provide an alternative to adiabatic protocols to guide the dynamics of the system of interest without the requirement of slow driving. We report the controlled speedup
Environment-Assisted Shortcuts to Adiabaticity
This work constructs the unique form of the driving on the environment that enables the system to evolve through the adiabatic manifold at all times, solely by controlling the environment, for a family of composite states of arbitrary dimension.
Many-body quantum heat engines with shortcuts to adiabaticity
Quantum heat engines are modeled by thermodynamic cycles with quantum-mechanical working media. Since high engine efficiencies require adiabaticity, a major challenge is to yield a nonvanishing power

We analyze state preparation within a restricted space of local control parameters between adiabatically connected states of control Hamiltonians. We formulate a conjecture that the time integral of
Shortcuts to adiabaticity in waveguide couplers–theory and implementation
ABSTRACT Adiabatic processes are ubiquitous in physics and engineering. A drawback of such processes is that they tend to be slow, either in time–for atomic systems, for example–or in space–for

Fast forward to the classical adiabatic invariant.
It is shown how the classical action, an adiabatic invariant, can be preserved under nonadiabatic conditions, and a local dynamical invariant J(q,p,t) whose value remains constant along these trajectories is constructed.
