## Abstract

We construct a dynamical decoupling protocol for accurately generating local and global symmetries in general many-body systems. Multiple commuting and non-commuting symmetries can be created by means of a self-similar-in-time ("polyfractal") drive. The result is an effective Floquet Hamiltonian that remains local and avoids heating over exponentially long times. This approach can be used to realize a wide variety of quantum models, and non-equilibrium quantum phases.
