In order to solve multidimensionaltunneling problems that cannot be treated by the normal instanton techniques, we introduce the path decomposition expansion formalism, and show its usefulness by solving three generic examples: the symmetric and asymmetric double well, and the decay problem. The technique allows us to handle excited states and backscattering effects in nonseparable potentials.
