Abstract : The report is organized into three chapters. Chapter 1 deals with one category of laser-induced nonlinear effects, multiphoton processes and the generation of harmonics. The amplification and modulation of light in nonlinear media are also discussed in this chapter. Chapter 2 is concerned with another category of nonlinear effects, stimulated Raman scattering (SRS). Chapter 3 reviews recent Soviet research on laser-induced gas breakdown. (Author)
