This graduate-level textbook gives an introductory overview of the fundamentals of quantum nonlinear optics. It deals with the organization of radiation field, interaction between electronic system and radiation field, statistics of light, and mutual manipulation of light and matter. It also covers laser oscillation, dynamics of light, nonlinear optical response, and nonlinear spectroscopy, as well as ultrashort and ultrastrong laser pulse. In addition, latest results of the frontier of this science are presented. Problems and solutions help the reader to master and review the material.

From the reviews:
"The book represents a fairly attempt to offer a modern graduate-level introductory overview to a number of phenomena and applications of nonlinear quantum optics. It can addressed to theoretical and experimental physicists and engineers ... . The book thus touches several aspects, introducing to both well-established and timely topics. ... a good choice for opening up quantum nonlinear optics to beginners, owing to the presence of both standard background material and a comprehensive up-to-date outlook to some of its trends." (Guilio Landolfi, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1122 (24), 2007)
