The book provides a unifying insight into fluctuation phenomena in a broad variety of vibrational systems of current interest. It consists of individual chapters written by leading experts in the field. The chapters are self-contained and complement each other. The ongoing rapid development of well-characterized mesoscopic vibrational systems has made it possible to address fundamental physics problems and to explore new approaches to quantum and classical measurements, with applications to quantum information, condensed matter physics, and engineering. The book gives an account of major results in this direction. The topics include dynamics and quantum control of microcavity modes coupled to qubits, measurements with bifurcation-based amplifiers and new types of such amplifiers; switching rate scaling and new quantum mechanisms of metastable decay; wave mixing and parametric excitation in the quantum regime; collective phenomena and the interaction-induced discrete time symmetry breaking; and back-action and shot noise in electron-vibrational systems.

"An excellent, up-to-date survey of the rapidly evolving field of classical and quantum fluctuations in nonlinear, mesoscopic oscillators. Broad in its sweep and expertly edited, it presents the reader with a panoramic, state-of-the-art view of one of the cutting-edge areas of modern physics research." --Daniel Stein, New York University
"An understanding of the nonlinear oscillator, driven by noise, is of immense importance to the fast-developing physics of mesoscopic systems. The book provides a broad and comprehensive perspective on the physics of real mesoscopic oscillators and promises to be enormously helpful to those entering or working in the field of mesoscopic systems, including theorists, experimentalists, and engineers." --Peter McClintock, Lancaster University
