Abstract
The methods proposed for the control of the dynamical evolution of a quantum system are, in principle, applicable to molecules of any size. However, the complexity of the description of the states of a molecule with many degrees of freedom has the practical consequence that obtaining the information necessary to design a control field is very difficult. To overcome this difficulty we propose, for the case of enhancement of specific product formation in a unimolecular reaction, the use of a particular reduced description of the many body dynamics, namely, a constrained reaction path representation. The formalism for this scheme is sketched, and some of the consequences of the approximations used are briefly discussed.
