I will describe the general ideas behind exponential asymptotic methods, their recent developments, and a number of open problems that were solved in the last few years using them, such as the behavior of Hydrogen atoms in time periodic fields and more generally nonperturbative analysis of the Schroedinger equation, of the wave equation with potential and of solutions of NLS.
