Shortcuts to adiabaticity are alternative fast processes which reproduce the same final state as the adiabatic process in a finite or even shorter time. In addition, shortcuts to adiabaticity are also fast routes to the final results of a system, where slow and adiabatic changes are produced by controlling the parameters of a system. In recent years, shortcuts to adiabaticity have been extended from Hermitian systems to non-Hermitian systems with non-Hermitian off-diagonal elements without parity–time (PT) symmetry. Because of their possible applications in quantum information processing and quantum control, shortcuts to adiabaticity with quantum open systems have attracted widespread attention. This Special Issue will attempt to cover the whole field of shortcuts to adiabaticity with quantum open systems in its widest sense, together with the related theory, experiments, and applications in various facets. We cordially and earnestly invite researchers to contribute their original and high-quality research papers which will inspire advances in theory, experiments, and their applications in shortcuts to adiabaticity with and without PT symmetry systems. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Shortcuts to adiabaticity with quantum open systems;
- Shortcuts to adiabaticity with and without PT symmetry;
- Basic theory of shortcuts to adiabaticity;
- Experimental realization of shortcuts to adiabaticity;
- Physical application of shortcuts to adiabaticity;
- Transitionless quantum driving;
- “Fast-forward” scaling;
- Inverse engineering based on Lewis–Riesenfeld in variants;
- Rotating-wave approximation and non-rotating-wave approximation;
- Shortcuts to adiabaticity in non-Hermitian systems;
- Shortcuts to adiabaticity of pseudohermite system.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Symmetry is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
