An alternative perturbative formulation is introduced to reduce the task of designing optimal controls of molecular motion. The method provides multiple optimal control fields as eigenvectors corresponding to the positive eigenvalues of a matrix [Formula Presented]. Analytical equations for the matrix elements [Formula Presented] are derived. Numerical examples are given for simple three- and four-state molecular systems. The method is shown to be computationally simple and efficient in providing good quality control results.
