Computer simulation techniques for extreme nonlinear optics are reviewed with emphasis on the high light-intensity regimes in which both bound and freed electronic states contribute to the medium response and thus affect the optical pulse dynamics. The first part concentrates on the optical pulse propagation modeling, and provides a classification of various approaches to optical-field evolution equations. Light-matter interaction models are reviewed in the second part, which concentrates on methods that can be integrated with time- and space-resolved simulations encompassing realistic experimental scenarios.
