The maximum energy at recollision, that is, the ponderomotive energy times three, 3Up = 3e2 E02 /(4mω02 ) ≈ 716 eV is indicated as a horizontal line contributions to the Lorentz force were included in the equations of motion. The initial values for the simulations were generated by applying a random rotation to the position vectors and the momentum vectors of the ground state configuration. 7) is invariant under such rotations, different ground state configurations with the same energy can be generated in this way.
