Title: Variational approach to inertia, dissipation, and constraints realization.
Abstract: We consider the problem of dissipative systems where the main part of dynamics can be described by Lagrangian methods. Such problems are frequently encountered in mechanical and electrical engineering problems. We shall focus mainly on the mechanical analogues of fluid-structure interaction, especially in the presence of friction. Variational approaches are particularly useful for deriving equations for arbitrary lagrangians. We discuss a variational approach to the dynamics of porous media by incorporating viscous forces in the variational principle. To elucidate the physics and mathematics of the problem, we study some simplified cases such as a pendulum with a moving viscous droplet. We show that the analog of Darcy's law for porous media (velocity proportional to force) in these simplified models comes from the short-term convergence to a ‘constraint manifold' in a singular perturbation problem and the following long-term dynamics on that manifold. The resulting Darcy's law can reduce to either holonomic or non-holonomic constraint for the motion, depending on the physical realization. We then discuss the relevance of our results to other dissipative systems and outline methods that can be useful for other applications in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering. This work was partially supported by NSERC and the University of Alberta.

Title: In Situ Upgrade of Quantum Simulators to Universal Computers
Abstract: Quantum simulators, machines that can replicate the dynamics of quantum systems, are being built as useful devices and are seen as a stepping stone to universal quantum computers. A key difference between the two is the ability to perform the logic gates that make up computational algorithms. We propose a method for learning how to construct these gates efficiently by using the simulator to perform optimal control on itself. This bypasses two major problems of purely classical approaches: the need to have an accurate model of the system, and a classical computer more powerful than the quantum one to carry out the optimisation. For numerical simulations of up to 9 qubits with Ising interactions, this in situ approach scales polynomially in the number of qubits for different topologies suggesting that this is a practical way of upgrading quantum simulators to computers.

Title: Dynamical Decoupling of Unbounded Hamiltonians
Abstract: We investigate the possibility to suppress unbounded interactions between a finite dimensional system and an infinite dimensional environment through a fast sequence of unitary kicks on the finite dimensional system. This method, called dynamical decoupling, is known to work for bounded interactions, but physical environments such as bosonic heat baths are usually modeled with unbounded interactions, whence here we initiate a systematic study of dynamical decoupling for unbounded operator. We develop a sufficient decoupling criterion for arbitrary Hamiltonians and a necessary decoupling criterion for semibounded Hamiltonians. We give examples for unbounded Hamiltonians where decoupling works and the limiting evolution as well as the convergence speed can be explicitly computed. We show that decoupling does not always work for unbounded interactions and provide both physically and mathematically motivated examples.

Title: Quantum Control: An Introduction to Controllability and Optimal Control
Abstract: Quantum Control is a highly successful approach to understanding quantum dynamics and tailoring it to one's needs. In this lecture, we will discuss the mathematical background to control, which includes results such as Trotter's Formula and the Quantum Recurrence Theorem with high relevance in other areas of quantum mechanics. We will then introduce the central concept of Reachability in control and characterize its properties in the context of Quantum Computation. Finally we discuss optimal control and its numerical implementation.
