Quantum Zeno dynamics and subspaces

Some significant examples of quantum Zeno effect will be proposed and their practical relevance discussed.

We analyze the quantum Zeno effect that arises for frequent projections onto a multi-dimensional subspace. Under such conditions, the system remains in the subspace defined by the measurement, undergoing a quantum Zeno dynamics with very interesting features. Some significant examples will be proposed and their practical relevance discussed. We comment on the control of decoherence, irreversibility and the drawbacks due to the inverse Zeno effect.
