"Elements of Quantum Optics" gives a selfcontained and broad coverage of the basic elements necessary to understand and carry out research in laser physics and quantum optics, including a review of basic quantum mechanics and pedagogical introductions to systemreservoir interactions and to second quantization. The text reveals the close connection between many seemingly unrelated topics, such as probe absorption, fourwave mixing, optical instabilities, resonance fluorescence and squeezing. It also comprises discussions of cavity quantum electrodynamics and atom optics. The 4th edition includes a new chapter on quantum entanglement and quantum information, as well as added discussions of the quantum beam splitter, electromagnetically induced transparency, slow light, and the inputoutput formalism needed to understand many problems in quantum optics. It also provides an expanded treatment of the minimumcoupling Hamiltonian and a simple derivation of the GrossPitaevskii equation, an important gateway to research in ultracold atoms and molecules.
