Implementation of Quantum Control Algorithms in C++ for Applications in Biomedical Spectroscopy and Quantum Computing

About We are seeking to implement advanced algorithms for solving problems in the area of quantum optimal control in C++. One major challenge in modern quantum physics and spectroscopy is the design of experiments that are robust with respect to various parameters such as drift and noise. However, the complex mathematical nature of solving the Schrödinger equation rarely allows for analytical solutions. In the past decades a variety of methods have emerged to remedy this obstacle by recasting the quantum control problem as a numerical optimization problem taking advantage of sophisticated existing optimizers. In this programming project we will implement a variety of quantum control algorithms and probe their efficiency and numerical accuracy in solving quantum control problems. These results are vitally important in a multitude of disciplines ranging from physics to chemistry, biology and medicine.
