Overview

This book is a self-contained account of the most important principles of nonlinear optics. Assuming a familiarity with basic mathematics, the fundamentals of nonlinear optics are developed from the basic concepts, introducing and explaining the essential quantum mechanical apparatus as it arises. Later chapters deal with the materials used and the constructions that are necessary to induce the effects.
