Control of quantum systems is central in a variety of present and perspective applications ranging from quantum optics and quantum chemistry to semiconductor nanostructures, including the emerging fields of quantum computation and quantum communication. Our focus is the modelling and numerical solution of quantum optimal control and controllability problems governed by models ranging from the finite-dimensional two-level system to infinite-dimensional density functional theory models. In all cases, challenging issues concerning the theory and numerical solution of these problems arise that are one of the purpose of our research.
