This book presents a systematic treatment of a broad area of modern optical physics dealing with coherence and fluctuations of light. It is a field that has largely developed since the first lasers became available in the 1960s. The first three chapters cover various mathematical techniques that are needed later. A systematic account is then presented of optical coherence theory within the framework of classical optics, and this is applied to subjects that have not been treated systematically before, such as radiation from sources of different states of coherence, foundations of radiometry, effects of source coherence on the spectra of radiated fields, coherence theory of laser modes and scattering of partially coherent light by random media. A semiclassical description of photoelectron detection precedes the treatment of field quantization and of the coherent suites, and this is followed by a discussion of photon statistics, the quantum theory of photoelectric detection and applications to thermal light. This includes a discussion of correlation measurements and photon antibunching, and of the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen locality paradox. A chapter is devoted to the interaction between light and a two-level atom and the problem of resonance fluorescence, and this is followed by treatments of cooperative radiation effects. After describing some general techniques for analyzing interacting quantum systems, such as the regression theorem and master equations, the book goes on to treat the single-mode and the two-mode laser and the linear amplifier. The concluding chapters deal with squeezed states of light and their generation and detection, and with some quantum effects in nonlinear optics, such as parametric down-conversion, phase conjugation and quantum non-demolition measurements. Each chapter concludes with a set of exercises. The authors are well-known scientists who have made substantial contributions to many of the topics treated in this book. Much of the book is based on various graduate courses given by them over the years. This book is likely to become an indispensable aid to scientists and engineers concerned with new developments in modern optics, as well as to teachers and graduate students of physics and engineering.

Leonard Mandel is the Lee DuBridge Professor of Physics and Optics at the University of Rochester. His research has been in the general area of optical coherence, lasers and quantum optics and it spins both experimental and theoretical work. Several of his many Ph.D. students have become well known in their fields. Professor Mandel was the first recipient of the Max Born Medal from the Optical Society of America in 1982 ; he received the Marconi Medal from the Italian National Research Council in 1987, the Thomas Young Medal from the (British) Institute of Physics in 1989, and the Ives Medal from the Optical Society of America in 1993. He has been on many editorial boards and committees of the American Physical Society and of the Optical Society of America. In 1992 he was a traveling lecturer in India for the International Commission for Optics, and in 1994 he was elected to membership in the New York Academy of Sciences. Emil Wolf is Wilson Professor of Optical Physics at the University of Rochester. His main areas of research are physical optics, electromagnetic theory and optical coherence theory, and he has published many papers on these and other subjects. He is the co-author, with Max Born, of a well-known test, Principles of Optics, and is the editor of an ongoing review series, Progress in Optics, of which 34 volumes have been published to date. Professor Wolf has received numerous awards for his scientific contributions, including the Ives Medal and the Max Born Medal of the Optical Society of America, the Albert A. Michelson Medal of the Franklin Institute, the Marconi Medal of the Italian National Research Council and a Gold Medal of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences. He is a past president of the Optical Society of America, an honorary member of the Optical Societies of America, India, and Australia, and has been awarded honorary degrees by the University of Groningen (the Netherlands), the University of Edinburgh (Scotland) and Palacky University (the Czech Republic).
