A reduced dimensional control dynamics formulation is presented for an arbitrary number of degrees of freedom. The traditional control feedback partial differential equation now becomes a small set of ordinary differential equations amenable to efficient numerical solution. This approach is capable of finding optimal solutions with only a few feedback iterations, thereby dramatically reducing the effort to obtain control designs. As an example, the reduced formalism is applied to selective dissociation of a triatomic molecule.
