Effective-range theory is developed to describe the processes of multiphoton bremsstrahlung absorption and the emission of laser radiation that accompanies the scattering of electrons from atoms in a laser field. It is found that the cross sections for multiphoton absorption in the plateau region increases resonantly for electron energies corresponding to the thresholds of induced bremsstrahlung (i.e., multiples of the photon energy). It is shown that this effect is caused by the laser-field modified threshold phenomena in the cross sections for multichannel reactions (Baz’ threshold anomalies).
