## Modern Nonlinear Optics, Part 3Significant advances have occurred in the field since the previous edition, including advances in light squeezing, single photon optics, phase conjugation, and laser technology. The laser is essentially responsible for nonlinear effects and is extensively used in all branches of science, industry, and medicine. |

Page 2 - The wave theory of light, which operates with continuous spatial functions, has worked well in the representation of purely optical phenomena and will probably never be replaced by another theory. It should be kept in mind, however, that the optical observations refer to time averages rather than instantaneous values. In spite of the complete experimental confirmation of the theory as applied to diffraction, reflection, refraction, dispersion, etc., it is still conceivable that the theory of light...

Page vi - ... we interpret very broadly. Our intent is to have experts present comprehensive analyses of subjects of interest and to encourage the expression of individual points of view. We hope that this approach to the presentation of an overview of a subject will both stimulate new research and serve as a personalized learning text for begiuners in a field.
