Abstract

A pathway analysis algorithms which provide an efficient and thorough means to reveal quantum-mechanical control mechanisms is introduced. Defining mechanisms in terms of pathways is quite natural and allows for clear meaning to be given to the notions of constructive and destructive interference in controlling quantum systems. Most significantly, the mechanism analysis can be carried out in stage ranging from just revealing the order of interactions involved all the way out to the highest level of detail, identifying each individual contributing pathway amplitude.
