The quantum control roadmap paper is now available on the arXiv:1508.00442.

Shortcuts to adiabaticity and optimal control


In section 2.2.3, where shortcuts to adiabaticity are discussed, is missing a citation to my work where shortcuts to adiabaticity are combined for the first time with optimal control and maximum principle (Phys. Rev. A 82, 063422, 2010). For a trully analytical result on the same problem, see SIAM Journal on Control and Optimization 49 (6), 2440-2462, 2011.

Also, the direct optimization method based on pseudospectral approximations cited in [250] was first introduced in: The Journal of Chemical Physics 131 (16), 164110, 2009.
