Abstract : The research carried out was chiefly concerned with the following topics: Behavior of the electromagnetic field in the focal region of a coherent beam, coherence effects of second and higher orders, correlation techniques in classical and quantum optics, theory of photoelectric detection of light fluctuations, phase space distributions of fluctuating electromagnetic fields, fluctuations in laser beams, Thomson scattering in intense laser beams, and correlation effects in many atom radiation processes.
