By Frank Close

Now not when you consider that Newton's apple has there been a physics phenomenon as deliciously attractive to the loads as Frank Close's Cosmic Onion. generally embraced through scientists and laypersons alike, the e-book fast turned a world bestseller, has been translated into seven languages, and propelled the writer to turn into a well-known renowned technological know-how megastar world wide. a lot has replaced because the unique ebook in 1983, and the hot Cosmic Onion was once broadly revised and up-to-date to mirror our new view of the universe. holding the easiest contents from the former paintings, this new version contains large new fabric explaining the clinical demanding situations at the beginning of this century.

**Quantum optics: quantum theories of spontaneous emission**

The aim of this text is to check spontaneous emission from a number of diverse viewpoints, even though a wide a part of will probably be dedicated to the quantum statistical theories of spontaneous emission which were built lately, and to discussing the interrelations between various methods.
