Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics, edited by Paul Berman, brings together reviews by some of the world's leading experts who summarize the progress they and others have made to date and look forward to future theoretical and experimental developmentsin this field. The level of presentation is suitable for the advanced graduate student and research scientist seeking an excellent overview of this subject.
* Significant topics covered include:
* Interaction of atoms and electrons with radiation fields inside a cavity
* Modification of atomic and cavity field evolution resulting from atom-cavity field coupling
* Creation of correlated atom-field states using cavity quantum electrodynamics
* Level shifts of atoms and electrons near conducting surfaces

Dr. Paul Berman is currently Professor of Physics at the University of Michigan. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, and a member of the Optical Society of America. Nonlinear spectroscopy, atomic physics, quantum optics, and atom interferometry are the major fields of Dr. Berman's research. Academic Press published one other book by this author, Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics (1995).Review:
"The first and last contributions in the book, by E.A. Hinds on 'Pertubative Cavity QED and by G. Barton on 'New Aspects of the Casimit Effect: Fluctuations and Radiation Reaction...could (indeed, probably should) be assigned forstudy in any graduate special-topics course devoted to quantum optics....each one supplies simplified examples that are treated in detail and have a nicely adjusted didactic aim, while also providing important recent research results.All of the articles include a generous collection of references...The typography is excellent; the size of the book is right for easy reference...There are no books in print offering material that could be considered competitive with this one, to the bestof my knowledge. All in all, the book can be warmly recommended not only to participants in the several areas of cavity QED, but also to serious nonparticipants who want to sample some of the excitement."
