Abstract
Intense-field many-body S-matrix theory (IMST) provides a systematic ab initio approach to investigate the dynamics of atoms and molecules interacting with intense laser radiation. We review the derivation of IMST as well as its diagrammatic representation and point out its advantage over the conventional 'prior' and 'post' expansions which are shown to be special cases of IMST. The practicality and usefulness of the theory is illustrated by its application to a number of current problems of atomic and molecular ionization in intense fields. We also present a consistent S-matrix formulation of the quantum amplitude for high harmonic generation (HHG) and point out some of the most general properties of HHG radiation emitted by a single atom as well as its relation to coherent emission from many atoms. Experimental results for single and double (multiple) ionization of atoms and the observed distributions of coincidence measurements are analysed and the dominant mechanisms behind them are discussed. Ionization of more complex systems such as diatomic and polyatomic molecules in intense laser fields is analysed as well using IMST and the results are discussed with special attention to the role of molecular orbital symmetry and molecular orientation in space. The review ends with a summary and a brief outlook.
