Strong in this context means that the electric field of the laser brings the state of the target system far away from the initial, typically ground-state, configuration, they say, which means that the standard textbook quantum mechanical perturbation theory is not applicable, and interesting non-perturbative phenomena appear, such as high-order above-threshold ionization or high-harmonic generation.
New relations and dualities involving scattering amplitudes may become manifest only through their actual calculations at higher orders in perturbation theory, yet invisible to the canonical approach to quantum field theory.
In view of the above, a new multicast tree update strategy based on perturbation theory Musp (Multicast Update Strategy based on Perturbation theory) is proposed, which reduces the data transmission interruption caused by the multicast tree update and improves user experiences.
According to the matrix perturbation theory, the singular values of a matrix are of good stability [24], so are the singular vectors.
