The concept of controlled quantum dynamical mechanism analysis to the coordinate space representation was presented. Pathways and pathway classes establish the dynamical interactions a system undergoes during a transition from an initial state to a final state. The CHAMP analysis of the model system revealed a high degree of constructive and destructive interference. The high degree of interference suggested that another representation could be found that gives an equivalent, but simpler perspective of the mechanism.
