What is the nature of tunnelling? This yet unanswered question is as pertinent today as it was at the dawn of quantum mechanics. This article presents a cross section of current perspectives on the interpretation, computational modelling, and numerical investigation of tunnelling processes in attosecond physics as debated in the Quantum Battles in Attoscience virtual workshop 2020.
