Abstract

Some properties of the higher-order coherence functions of optical fields are reviewed. A few experiments on light, beat, and interference are discussed by using the fourth-order coherence functions. The higher-order coherence functions of the amplitude-stabilized laser are derived by assuming the gaussian process for the phase fluctuations.
