Dynamical Schwinger mechanism for pair production

I will discuss the Schwinger mechanism for the $e^{+}e^{-}$ pair production in the presence of a time-dependent external electric field. A review of the kinetic approach to this non-perturbative process will be presented. Some investigations show posibility of the $e^{+}e^{-}$ pair production even in weaker than the critical but time-dependent field.
