Title: Numerical modeling of radiation-dominated and quantum-electrodynamically strong regimes of laser-plasma interaction

Abstract

Ultra-strong laser pulses can be so intense that an electron in the focused beam loses significant energy due to {gamma}-photon emission while its motion deviates via the radiation back-reaction. Numerical methods and tools designed to simulate radiation-dominated and quantum-electrodynamically strong laser-plasma interactions are summarized here.
