## Intense resonant interactions in quantum electronicsThe physical basis and applications of intense resonant interactions of laser light with matter are dealt with in this volume. For senior students and researchers working experimentally or theoretically in the domain of intense resonant interactions, the course gives a broad survey and detailed treatment of the topic using modern mathematical methods which are put into clear physical form. Similarities and differences in the various interaction processes are outlined, and each chapter begins with a qualitative description of the phenomenon under study. All phenomena are considered from one general view- point, requiring knowledge only of basic quantum mechanics. |
