monochromatic laser light. Unlike the direct "brute force" diagonalization method, which has been used for huge Floquet matrix eigenvalue problems, the new method follows a simple iterative process. The computational advantages of
the iterative method are very remarkable as it avoids computation, storage, and diagonalization of the huge Floquet matrix. The new method can also be used in
conjunction with the ab initio computational techniques that were originally developed for the field-free bound state calculations. The method is best illustrated
with the photoionization resonance of the hydrogen atom.
