Constructive procedures for the control of a class of coupled spin systems with bounded amplitude sinusoidal pulses are described. Full details are first illustrated for a single spin 1/2 particle. The key steps for a pair of such particles are then sketched. The fact that the amplitudes can be arbitrarily bounded implies that the separation between the Larmor frequencies of the individual spin 1/2 particles can be quite small and yet the system can be controlled by addressing each spin individually.
