In the framework of the
Trimestre sur le Controle des Equations aux
Derivees Partielles et Applications (1st October  December 18th
2010)
we are pleasent to announce a workshop on Quantum Control.
Aims of the workshop
One
of the most challenging and modern applications of the control of PDEs
is the control of Quantum Mechanical Systems. Indeed the problem of
inducing transitions between molecular levels or spin states is relevant
to many applications of chemical physics: from Nuclear Magnetic
Resonance, to spectroscopy, to the realization of Quantum gates
in quantum information science. These experiments are often very
delicate and expensive. With no doubt, control theory can bring new
perspectives. The purpose of this workshop is to create a link among the mathematical community of control of PDEs, the community of finite dimensional quantum control, the community of quantum mechanics and the community of physicists and engineers carrying out real experiments. The aim is twofold. First, this will be an opportunity for mathematicians to know what "real problems" are. Then, engineers and physicists can learn new mathematical techniques and optimization methods. The conference will cover the following topics:
