Multiphoton ionization of atoms in intense laser-light fields is gaining ground as a spectroscopic diagnostic tool. In this volume, Delone and Krainov present both their own and other theoretical descriptions of the processes occurring in atoms under conditions of multiphoton impact, in particular, the shift, broadening, and mixing of electronic states which complicate the interpretation of spectra. The topics of individual chapters include tunnelling ionization, above-threshold ionization, ionization of multiply charged ions, resonance-enhanced ionization, super-intense radiation fields, and properties of Rydberg states in strong fields.
