A theoretical analysis of optimal control of quantum nanostructures is presented. Thus, a general solution scheme for the optimization of an external control is developed, which allows to channel the system's wave function between the two given state in its most efficient way. A computer algorithm for the solution of the optimal-control problem is derived and analyzed in detail. Finally, the applicability of the approach for a generic three-level quantum system is demonstrated, and has identified the pertinent calculation and convergence parameters.
