Сomputer modeling of dynamic Schwinger effect: problems and opportunities

We consider the problem of pair creation in time-dependent strong external fields within a kinetic equation approach. Different types of time dependence of model laser pulses and their relation to the distribution function of produced particles are discussed. Special attention is paid to the subtleties of the numerical solution of the kinetic equation with time-dependent non-Markovian source term.
