Item description for Nonlinear Optics by Nicolaas Bloembergen...

Nicolaas Bloembergen, recipient of the Nobel Prize for Physics (1981), wrote Nonlinear Optics in 1964, when the field of nonlinear optics was only three years old. The available literature has since grown by at least three orders of magnitude.

The vitality of Nonlinear Optics is evident from the still-growing number of scientists and engineers engaged in the study of new nonlinear phenomena and in the development of new nonlinear devices in the field of opto-electronics. This monograph should be helpful in providing a historical introduction and a general background of basic ideas both for experts specializing in this discipline and for scientists and students who wish to become acquainted with it.

This is the fourth reprint and includes new references to the recent literature.

Reviews - What do customers think about Nonlinear Optics?

Dated but very insightfull  Oct 3, 2007
This book is a classic. Bloembergen is one of those physicists that managed to cover a field theoretically a long time before many of the ideas got to be realised. I like this book very much because it starts at the basics (it was truly new at the time so he takes the time to explain things and look at them from various perspectives). The notation and typesetting ar every dated but the story is very clear.
Fourth Edition???  Oct 4, 2003
This book is well worth the eighteen bucks, but readers should be warned that its description as a "fourth edition" seems to have no justification. Bloembergen states flat-out in his introduction that "no attempt has been made to revise this material dating from 1964." The date of the original edition is given as 1965, and the author states that the only changes have been an epilogue (1 1/2 pages) and a list of more up to date textbooks (half a page). This makes me feel that if I buy any more books from World Scientific, I would want to double check their book descriptions.
