about

Methods in theoretical quantum optics is aimed at those readers who already have some knowledge of mathematical methods and have also been introduced to the basic ideas of quantum optics. This book is ideal for students who have already explored the basics of the quantum theory of light andare seeking to acquire the mathematical skills used in real problems. This book is not primarily about the physics of quantum optics, but rather presents the mathematical methods widely used by workers in this field. There is no comparable book which covers either the range or the depth of mathematical techniques.
