Numerical modelling of Compton scattering in ultra-intense laser pulses
Paper i proceeding, 2015
We examine current methods of numerically implementing Compton scattering in the context of intense laser-matter interactions. In a recent publication  it has been shown that a commonly used approach generates the correct spectra in nearly all cases, except those when the harmonic structure is important. Here we provide an explanation for this using an alternative, classical argument.
