Quantum Feedback Control
Kurt Jacobs gave a presentation about Quantum Feedback Control. He showed how to introduce the action of weak continuous measurements into a master equation that. This equation resembles the Lindblad equation with an extra stochastic term, where the feedback can be introduced in the Hamiltonian. One application was to create a cat state of a harmonic oscillator.
