First, we present a necessary and sufficient conditions for accessibility of bilinear systems evolving on semisimple (matrix) Lie groups. From this, we derive a controllability criterion for parallel connections of bilinear systems which gets a if-and-only-if condition in the case of compact Lie groups. Finally, we present a key application from quantum control.
