Self-Consistent Maxwell-Schrödinger Theory

Perturbation methods are powerful semi-analytical methods that can serve for describing physical phenomenon at the regimes of weak interactions. We investigate the domain of degrees of freedom, involving electron-light interactions, and search for parameters for which perturbation analysis as well as eikonal approximations breaks down. As a results of it, an emerging class of physical phenomenon are explored. For this purpose, we develop self-consistent Maxwell-Schrödinger and Maxwell-Dirac numerical toolboxes.
