# Solution to the Schrodinger equation for periodically time dependent Hamiltonians

I have a Hamiltonian which is time dependent but possesses periodic symmetry: $H(t+t_0)=H(t)$. Is there any clever techniques to exploit this? Edit: In particular, I would like a practical method to simulate the dynamics of such a system (as opposed to naive time-slicing).

Do you want dynamics or average ground state? – Joe Fitzsimons Jan 25 '12 at 19:04
@JoeFitzsimons -- good question. This was an example question I used at a StackExchange participation drive, so I unfortunately didn't give it much thought. I will make it clearer now. – Chris Ferrie Jan 26 '12 at 0:36
