TIME-VARYING QUANTUM LIOUVILLE EQUATIONS

By C. Altafini

Abstract

Abstract. In this paper, the Dyson series corresponding to the time-varying Hamiltonian of a finite dimensional quantum mechanical system is expanded in terms of products of exponentials of a complete basis of commutator superoperators in the corresponding Liouville space. The Cayley-Hamilton theorem and the Wei-Norman formula allow to express explicitly the functional relation between the Dyson series and the product of exponentials via a set of first order differential equations. Since the method is structure preserving, it can be used for the exact unitary integration of the driven Liouville-von Neumann equation. 1
