by M. Wohlecke, K. Betzler, M. Imlau

**Publisher**: University of Osnabruck 2005**Number of pages**: 114

**Description**:

These lecture notes cover some basic topics in nonlinear optics, they accompany lectures held for the Ph. D. students in the graduate college Nonlinearities of Optical Materials. The first part gives a short introduction to the physics of crystals and the treatment of symmetry-dependent properties.
