Particle physics (also high energy physics) is the branch of physics that studies the nature of the particles that constitute matter and radiation. Although the word "e;particle"e; can refer to various types of very small objects "e;particle physics"e; usually investigates the irreducibly smallest detectable particles and the fundamental interactions necessary to explain their behaviour. By our current understanding, these elementary particles are excitations of the quantum fields that also govern their interactions. The currently dominant theory explaining these fundamental particles and fields, along with their dynamics, is called the Standard Model. Thus, modern particle physics generally investigates the Standard Model and its various possible extensions, e.g. to the newest "e;known"e; particle, the Higgs boson, or even to the oldest known force field, gravity. Written in a clear pedagogic style by active researchers, this book will prepare a beginner to work in the field and at the same time will also provide useful reference material for active researchers.

The book gives a broad coverage of the basic elements necessary to understand and carry out research in quantum optics. It presents a variety of theoretical tools and important results for two-level and semiconductor media, many of which could only be found in the original literature of in specialized monographs up to now. The text reveals the close connection between many seemingly unrelated topics. The book "e;Quantum Optics"e; has been written to meet the requirement of the degree and post graduate students. The subject matter has been discussed in such a simple way that the students will find no difficult to understand it. Most of the examples given in the book have been selected from various university examination papers and the book cover the syllabus of almost all the universities.
