Shortcuts to adiabaticity (STA) [1] are processes that make a given quantum state evolve into a target state in a fast manner, which can be useful to avoid decoherence in quantum experiments. In this journal club, I will concisely review the concept of STA, and then focus on the recently proposed classical counterparts of STA, sometimes called engineered swift equilibration, in Brownian particle systems [2] and evolutionary systems [3].
