    • Suitable for graduate students starting a MSc or PhD in the field of strong-field quantum dynamics.
    • Includes detailed explanations of the widely used numerical wavefunction propagators.
    • Contains many examples.

    Aims and Scope

    This graduate textbook introduces the com-putational techniques to study ultra-fast quantum dynamics of matter exposed to strong laser fields. Coverage includes methods to propagate wavefunctions according to the time dependent Schrödinger, Klein-Gordon or Dirac equation, the calculation of typical observables, time-dependent density functional theory, multi configurational time-dependent Hartree-Fock, time-dependent configuration interaction singles, the strong-field approximation, and the microscopic particle-in-cell approach.
