We apply the Magnus and Fer perturbation methods to Jaynes Cummings Model (JCM) with linear time dependence and show that the perturbation methods yield results which are appreciably close to the results obtained by Wei-Norman method, leading to exact solution when the Hamiltonian under consideration is an element of su(2), thus making the perturbation methods important for Hamiltonians for which a method of exact solution is not available.
