The theory of nonresonant scattering of a photon by an electron in the field of an intense pulsed light wave is developed. The approximation when a pulse width is considerably greater than the characteristic time of wave oscillation is considered. The nonresonant kinematic region is determined. The general relativistic expression for the nonresonant cross-section is derived for the range of the external field intensities if η0 ≲ 1, η02 ≪ 1 (see Eq. (12)) is valid. The obtained differential cross-section of the process has form of a sum over partial differential cross-sections. Each of them corresponds to the process with emission (absorption) of a certain number of wave photons. It is shown, that for nonrelativistic energy the cross-section summed over all possible partial processes differs considerably from the cross-section of Compton scattering if the external field is absent and may exceed the latter over than 200%.
