Topics comprise partly coherent gentle, photoelectric counting distributions, dynamical selection of statistical description, and equations of movement and coherent-state illustration of the electromagnetic box. extra topics surround quantum idea of optical correlation phenomena, unique nation of radiation fields, and depth interferometry in quantum optics. The textual content bargains fairly whole remedies of homes of the coherent states and of the "diagonal" representations for statistical states. those equipment are utilized to experiences of coherence, coincident counting charges, and counting distributions for a few bodily major states, together with thermal and laser-like fields.
