Title: Pair production and back reaction in strong fields: Numerical results

Abstract

The problem I shall address in detail in this talk is pair production of either bosons or fermions from strong electric fields which are functions only of time t, or only of the fluid proper time {tau} = (t{sup 2} - z{sup 2}){sup 1/2}. I shall compare the results of the numerical simulation of this problem (for the degradation of the field, the particle spectra, etc.) with a semi-classical transport approach using a Schwinger-inspired source term.
