  • Progress in Optics by Emil Wolf

    Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 235.00

    The first volume of this text was published in 1961, only a few months after the invention of the laser. This event triggered a wealth of developments, many of which were reported in the 240 review articles which were published in this series since its inception. The present volume contains seven articles covering a wide range of subjects. The first... more...

  • 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...

  • Progress in Opticsby Emil Wolf

    Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 240.00

    Optics has become one of the most dynamic fields of science since the first volume of Progress in Optics was published, forty years ago. At the time of inception of this series, the first lasers were only just becoming operational, holography was in its infancy, subjects such as fiber optics, integrated optics and optoelectronics did not exist and... more...

  • Progress in Opticsby Emil Wolf

    Elsevier Science 2005; US$ 240.00

    In the thirty-seven years that have gone by since the first volume of Progress in Optics was published, optics has become one of the most dynamic fields of science. At the time of inception of this series, the first lasers were only just becoming operational, holography was in its infancy, subjects such as fiber optics, integrated optics and optoelectronics... 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...

  • The Mathematics of Geometrical and Physical Opticsby Orestes N. Stavroudis

    Wiley 2006; US$ 239.00 US$ 207.13

    In this sequel to his book, "The Optics of Rays, Wavefronts, and Caustics," Stavroudis not only covers his own research results, but also includes more recent developments. The book is divided into three parts, starting with basic mathematical concepts that are further applied in the book. Surface geometry is treated with classical mathematics, while... more...

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

    Wiley 2009; US$ 234.00 US$ 202.80

    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...
