We discuss how and when one can implement and approximate given active and passive systems using lossless/Hamiltonian systems. In particular, we show that lossless systems are dense in the passive systems in a certain sense. We furthermore discuss how laws from statistical physics, such as the fluctuation-dissipation theorem, give rise to meaningful limitations in control problems. Joint work with Jean-Charles Delvenne and John C. Doyle.
