Theoretical Optics: An Introduction

Front Cover
John Wiley & Sons, Mar 6, 2006 - Science - 375 pages
0 Reviews
Starting from basic electrodynamics, this volume provides a solid, yet concise introduction to theoretical optics, containing topics such as nonlinear optics, light-matter interaction, and modern topics in quantum optics, including entanglement, cryptography, and quantum computation.
The author, with many years of experience in teaching and research, goes way beyond the scope of traditional lectures, enabling readers to keep up with the current state of knowledge. Both content and presentation make it essential reading for graduate and phD students as well as a valuable reference for researchers.

He held Postdoc positions at the Weizmann Institute of Science and at CERN in Geneva. He has been full professor for Theoretical Physics in Freiburg since 1979. His research interests include particle theory and quantum field theory, in particular geometrical and topological methods: symplectic geometry, quantization theory, classical limit and short wave asymptotics.
