The quantum theory of light and its fluctuations are applied in areas as diverse as the conceptual foundations of quantum theory, nanotechnology, communications, and gravitational wave detection. The primary purpose of this book is to introduce some of the most basic theory for scientists who have studied quantum mechanics and classical electrodynamics at a graduate or advanced undergraduate level. Perhaps it might also offersome different perspectives and some materialthat elsewhere. Any book purporting to be a serious introduction to quantum optics and fluctuations should include field quantization and some of its consequences. It is not so easy to decide which other aspects of this broad field are most apt or instructive.
