Quantum noise

£29.99

Product description

This book offers a systematic and comprehensive exposition of the quantum stochastic methods that have been developed in the field of quantum optics. It includes new treatments of photodetection, quantum amplifier theory, non-Markovian quantum stochastic processes, quantum input--output theory, and positive P-representations. It is the first book in which quantum noise is described by a mathematically complete theory in a form that is also suited to practical applications. Special attention is paid to non-classical effects, such as squeezing and antibunching. This second edition has been enlarged so as to take account of rapid progress in the field, and now includes two additional chapters on the stochastic SchrAdinger equation, and on cascaded quantum systems.


Book condition: Hardback cover has slight bumping to corners and very minor indentation marks otherwise it is in excellent condition. No creasing to spine. Pages are tightly bound, clean and unmarked. Inscription on first page "DENZIL RODRIGUES" in red ink.

Oxfam Books & Music Beeston

The Beeston books and music shop is situated near to Nottingham University, close to the city of Nottingham. There is a train station nearby. We offer a wider selection of books than most shops, from modern fiction and leisure interest to more specialist subjects, academic books, and rare or collectable items. There is a wide variety of music, including sheet music and a good selection of high quality classical, rock and pop vinyl. The volunteer team is a diverse mix from the local community, and University. We are currently recruiting for a quality control volunteer. We always welcome good quality, saleable donations which can be delivered to our rear entrance.
