Control of relativistic wave packets through the Dirac equation and classical limit
The Dirac equation, one of the most famous equations in physics, is finding new applications beyond high energy physics. Nevertheless, the ability to find analytic solutions remains a difficult problem. Even more challenging, achieving quantum control requires time-dependent dynamics involving electric and magnetic fields obeying Maxwell's equations. In this talk we present a variety of exact solutions of the Dirac equation including the steering of coherent relativistic wave-packets and the corresponding classical limits. Additionally, we also present analytic solutions of the nonlinear Dirac equation.
