Sorry, this item is currently not available.
The book provides an introduction to the methods of quantum statistical mechanics used in quantum optics and their application to the quantum theories of the singlemode laser and optical bistability. The generalized representations of Drummond and Gardiner are discussed together with the more standard methods for deriving FokkerPlanck equations. Particular attention is given to the theory of optical bistability formulated in terms of the positive Prepresentation, and the theory of small bistable systems. This is a textbook at an advanced graduate level. It is intended as a bridge between an introductory discussion of the master equation method and problems of current research.
