Abstract : In order to understand the basic nature of cooperative effects between different atoms we have treated during this period the cooperative effects between two atoms interacting one with another via the vacuum field and under the influence of applied coherent electromagnetic field. We have studied the problem of resonance fluorescence from two two-level atoms and have developed a new treatment to this problem by using the methods of Stenholm and Baklanov, which have been used previously only for one atom. We have given the full and maximally simplified equations so that anybody who is interested in the two atom resonance fluorescence spectra can calculate it by the use of a computer for any specific case. For the special case of two-level atoms within a distance smaller than a wavelength and for a strong external field analytical results have been developed.
