Feedback Control of Linear Dynamical Quantum Systems

Hendra I. Nurdin, Naoki Yamamoto

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter introduces and treats the topic of quantum feedback control on linear quantum systems. Two distinct approaches to feedback control of quantum systems are considered: measurement-based feedback control and coherent feedback control. For measurement-based feedback control, the notions of controlled Hudson–Parthasarathy QSDEs and controlled quantum filtering equations are introduced. Three control problems are formulated and solved: measurement-based linear quadratic Gaussian control, coherent linear quadratic Gaussian control, and coherent feedback H control. Examples are provided to illustrate each control method.
