This authoritative resource is the first single-volume work to bridge the interrelated disciplines of atomic, molecular, and optical physics. Along with a summary of key ideas, techniques, and results, you will find diagrams of apparatus, and helpful graphs and tables of data. Contributions from over 100 authors -- all leaders in their respective disciplines -- cover a broad range of topics, including mathematical methods: scattering theory, equipment, and experiments; quantum optics; as well as applications to plasmas, astrophysics, global change, combustion, surface physics, radiation physics, and more.
