The advance of lasers in a position to generating high-intensity pulses has opened a brand new region within the research of light-matter interactions. The corresponding laser fields are robust adequate to compete with the Coulomb forces in controlling the dynamics of atomic structures and provides upward thrust to multiphoton techniques. This publication offers a unified account of this speedily constructing box of physics. the 1st half describes the elemental phenomena taking place in extreme laser-atom interactions and offers the fundamental theoretical framework to research them. the second one half incorporates a particular dialogue of Floquet idea, the numerical integration of the wave equations and approximation equipment for the low- and high-frequency regimes. within the 3rd half, the most multiphoton methods are mentioned: multiphoton ionization, excessive harmonic and attosecond pulse iteration, and laser-assisted electron-atom collisions. geared toward graduate scholars in atomic, molecular and optical physics, the publication also will curiosity researchers engaged on laser interactions with topic.
