Abstract : We continue research on our approach to the coherent radiative control of molecular processes. Our focus remains, as in the past, on extending the general theory and on theoretically designing laboratory scenarios for displaying control. The latter also entails a significant effort to minimize effects which tend to diminish dephasing, thermal population distributions and partial laser coherence. We have, during the course of this grant period, done several seminal pieces of research which both extend the theory and provide the basis for considerably greater advances in the near future. jg p.8
