Electron Scattering in the Presence of Laser Radiation
Rather than attempting to survey the considerable amount of work done during the past few years on the problem of electron scattering in a radiation field I thought it would be more useful to focus on a particular aspect, concerned with infrared radiation, and describe in some detail what appears to me to provide a proper theoretical framework for such problems. (More comprehensive treatments can be found in recent reviews [1–2].) I will, however, just to set the stage, give a brief rundown of some of the very early work bearing on this topic.
