**Control of Quantum Systems: Theory and Methods** provides an insight into the system theory approaches to control of quantum systems evolution, with a focus on both closed and open quantum systems. The topic is timely, covering the newest research in the fi eld, and presents and summarizes practical methods and addresses the more theoretical aspects of control, which are of high current interest, but which are not covered at this level in other textbooks.

The book:

- Presents advanced research examining closed and open quantum systems
- Looks at stability analysis of quantum control systems with particular emphasis on the Lyapunov technique
- Equips readers with the potential theories and advanced methods needed to solve existing problems.

The quantum control theory and methods in this book are the result of a combination of macrocontrol theory and microscopic quantum system features. As the development of the nanotechnology progresses, the quantum control theory and methods proposed today are expected to be useful in real quantum systems within five years. Researchers, academics and engineers in quantum engineering, quantum computing, quantum information, quantum communication, quantum physics, and quantum chemistry whose research interests are quantum systems control will find this book useful. Graduate students whose interests are quantum system control will also find it valuable.
