    This book is about Nonlinear Optics, the study of how high-intensity light propagates through and interacts with matter. It takes the reader from the starting point of Maxwell's equations to some of the frontiers of modern research in the subject.

    Preface -- Introduction -- Theory of Light Propagation in Linear and Weakly Nonlinear (Kerr Medium) Dielectrics -- Communications in Optical Fibers and Nonlinear Waveguides -- The Interaction Between Light and Matter -- Applications: Lasers, Optical Bistability, Distributed Feedback, Self-Induced Transparency, and Stimulated Scattering -- Mathematical and Computational Methods
