Abstract
For isospectral bilinear control systems evolving on the so-called complex flag man-
ifolds (i.e., on the orbits of the Hermitian matrices under unitary conjugation action)
it is shown that controllability is almost always verified. Easy and generic sufficient
conditions are provided. The result applies to the problem of density operator con-
trollability of finite dimensional quantum mechanical systems. In addition, we show
that systems having different drifts (corresponding for example to different Larmor
frequencies) are simultaneously controllable by the same control field.
