Theoretical femtosecond physics is a new field of research. Theoretical investigations of atoms and molecules interacting with pulsed or continuous wave lasers of up to atomic field strengths are leading to an understanding of many challenging experimental discoveries. Laser-matter interaction is treated on a nonperturbative level in the book using approximate and numerical solutions of the time-dependent Schrödinger equation. The light field is treated classically. Physical phenomena, ranging from ionization of atoms to the ionization and dissociation of molecules and the control of chemical reactions are presented and discussed. Theoretical background for experiments with strong and short laser pulses is given. Several exercises are included in the main text. Some detailed calculations are performed in the appendices.About the Author:

Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.The development of modern pulsed lasers with power densities larger than 16 ?2 10 Wcm and with very short pulse duration in the femtosecond regime enables experimentalists to study elementary processes such as chemical - actions and excitation mechanisms in di?erent areas in physics in the time domain. In parallel to the experimental investigations, analytical and num- ical studies of laser-driven atoms and molecules with a limited number of degrees of freedom are performed. These theoretical investigations have led to the prediction and/or the explanation of a large variety of partly count- intuitivephenomena. Amongthosearethegenerationofhighharmonicsusing laser-excitedatomsormolecules,theionizationofatomsabovethecontinuum threshold, the stabilization of atoms against ionization in very strong ?elds, counter-intuitive pulse sequences to selectively populate vibrational states in moleculesand,lastbutnotleast,thecontrolofchemicalreactionsbyspec ially tailored laser pulses. This book originated from a course, that I have been giving on a regular basis since 2000 for advanced undergraduate and graduate students at Te- nische Universit. at Dresden. It o?ers a theoretically oriented approach to the ? eld of laser-driven atomic and molecular systems and requires some kno- edge of basic classical and quantum mechanics courses as well as of classical electrodynamics. The book has two introductory chapters in Part I that pave the way for the applications in Part II. Part I and also Chap. 3 of Part II contain of textbook knowledge that is needed to understand the rest of the book. The material presented in the last two chapters is close to the recent l- erature.
