**Lecture Notes on Nonlinear Optics**

by

**Fredrik Jonsson**,

**2003**

Nonlinear optics is the discipline in which the electric polarization density of the medium is studied as a nonlinear function of the electromagnetic field of the light. This text is an introduction to the phenomena encountered in nonlinear optics.

**Quantum Optics and Nonlinear Optics**

by

**Karl-Peter Marzlin**-

**University of Calgary**,

**2007**

These notes cover the fundamentals of quantum and nonlinear optics. The foundations of quantum optics include quantization of the electromagnetic field and many-particle theories, interaction between atoms and photons, few-level models for atoms...

**Nonlinear Wave Equations**

by

**Heinz-Jürgen Schmidt**-

**University of Osnabrück**,

**2003**

What are the physical origins of nonlinearity? We will have to give different answers depending on the case under consideration. This text aims at providing a general physical background rather than dealing with the details of the various projects.

**Nonlinear Optics**

by

**M. Wohlecke, K. Betzler, M. Imlau**-

**University of Osnabruck**,

**2005**

These lecture notes cover some basic topics in nonlinear optics, they accompany lectures held for the Ph. D. students. The first part gives a short introduction to the physics of crystals and the treatment of symmetry-dependent properties.

**An Introduction to the Quantum Theory of Nonlinear Optics**

by

**Mark Hillery**-

**arXiv**,

**2009**

This text provides an introduction to the quantum theory of optics in nonlinear dielectric media. We begin with a short summary of the classical theory of nonlinear optics, that is nonlinear optics done with classical fields.
