  • Progress in Optics by Emil Wolf

    Elsevier Science 2001; US$ 235.00

    This volume presents six review articles devoted to various topics of current interest both in classical and in quantum optics. The first article, by S. Ya. Kilin, entitled "Quanta and Information", is concerned with a multidisciplinary subject which involves optics, information theory, programming and discrete mathematics. The second article, "Optical... more...

  • Progress in Optics by Emil Wolf

    Elsevier Science 2003; US$ 235.00

    A volume in the Progress in Optics series, the papers in this book cover a range of topics, including: anamorphic beam shaping for laser and diffuse light; ultra-fast all-optical switching in optical networks; generation of dark hollow beams and their application; and two-photon lasers. more...

  • Atom Optics and Space Physicsby E. Arimondo; W. Ertmer; E.M. Rasel

    IOS Press 2009; US$ 261.00

    The goal of this volume is to discuss the rapidly moving field of atom optics and interferometry with all its intricate aspects ranging from fundamental physics to applications and the theory of relativity. The breathtaking success in manipulating atoms using lasers has encouraged these two so far disjunct communities to move closer together and begin... more...

  • A Group-Theoretical Approach to Quantum Opticsby Andrei B. Klimov; Sergei M. Chumakov

    Wiley 2009; US$ 234.00

    Written by major contributors to the field who are well known within the community, this is the first comprehensive summary of the many results generated by this approach to quantum optics to date. As such, the book analyses selected topics of quantum optics, focusing on atom-field interactions from a group-theoretical perspective, while discussing... more...
