Part of the Physics of Atoms and Molecules book series (PAMO)


This contribution is concerned with the theory of ionization of atoms by strong laser fields, when ionization channels of different photon multiplicity are simultaneously open. Presently, this process is attracting a lot of attention, from both the experimental and theoretical sides.
