We develop a computational approach for ultrafast nano-optics based on first-principles time-dependent density functional theory. Solving Maxwell equations for light propagation and time-dependent Kohn-Sham equation for electron dynamics simultaneously, intense and ultrashort laser pulse interaction with a dielectric nano-structure is described taking full account of nonlinear effects. As an illustrative example, irradiation of a pulsed light on silicon nano-sphere system is presented.
