Li et al., published by De Gruyter Open. Frequency comb sources have revolutionized metrology and spectroscopy and found applications in many fields. Stable, low-cost, high-quality frequency comb sources are important to these applications. Modeling of the frequency comb sources will help the understanding of the operation mechanism and optimization of the design of such sources. In this paper, we review the theoretical models used and recent progress of the modeling of frequency comb sources.
