Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 4222)


A quantum algorithm which allows one to simulate the quantum open-loop control systems is presented. We study the model of steering a spin 1/2 particle via externally electromagnetic fields in detail. Simulation results obtained from the quantum circuit confirm the validity of our approach.
