Interplay of Hamiltonian control and and decoherence: a caveat, some hope and a new simulation strategy — •Jürgen Stockburger — Institute for Complex Quantum Systems, Ulm University
Hamiltonian control and decoherence are intricately intertwined in low-temperature quantum systems. For controls which act on timescales shorter than the thermal time ℏβ, Markovianity can no longer be assumed (RWA breakdown) . When open-system dynamics is mapped on a stochastic propagation, this case can be treated exactly, and standard optimal control techniques can be used to explore synergy effects between control and reservoir interaction. Quantum states can thus be purified  and systems entangled  by the combined effect of local control and dissipation.
This stochastic mapping can now be combined with non-perturbative projection techniques, requiring only moderate computational resources .
