This book 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. It should be attractive to students who have already explored one of the more introductory texts such as Loudon's The quantum theory of light (2/e, 1983, OUP) and are 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
... the authors are well-known for their work on topics, such as the quantum-phase operator and quasi-probability distribution so theory PhD students will be able to learn these subjects direct from the horse's mouth. The authors have [] included, for pedagogic purposes, extra detail of the mathematical workings that a PhD student would not be able find in the research literature. * New Scientist, 6 June 1998 *
The reader will find here a very clear presentation of material not readily found elsewhere. Postgraduate students of quantum optics will find this work to be of the greatest utility... Care has been taken to present quite difficult topics in the simplest and most straightforward way; and yet the treatment is concise and focused... Experienced researchers will find that this text is a most convenient handbook of techniques, and will want it close to their elbow. * Contemporary Physics, 1998, vol. 39, no. 4 *
