**Shortcuts to Adiabaticity: Concepts, Methods, and Applications**

by D. Guery-Odelin, et al.

**Publisher**: arXiv.org 2019**Number of pages**: 59

**Description**:

Shortcuts to adiabaticity (STA) are fast routes to the final results of slow, adiabatic changes of the controlling parameters of a system. The shortcuts are designed by a set of analytical and numerical methods suitable for different systems and conditions. A motivation to apply STA methods to quantum systems is to manipulate them in timescales shorter than decoherence times.
