Abstract

A new efficient algorithm was proposed for solving coupled quantum control equations allowing multiple target operators with desired expected values to specify an objective state. To design a field that transferred a molecule to an objective state an optimal control procedure was presented. Constraints on the time behavior of specified operators during the control period were taken into account. The algorithm represented in the quadruple-space notation reduced to double-space notation in the absence of time-dependant constraints.
