What are the physical origins of nonlinearity? We will have to give different answers depending on the case under consideration. This text aims at providing a general physical background rather than dealing with the details of the various projects.

Nonlinear optics is the discipline in which the electric polarization density of the medium is studied as a nonlinear function of the electromagnetic field of the light. This text is an introduction to the phenomena encountered in nonlinear optics.

This text provides an introduction to the quantum theory of optics in nonlinear dielectric media. We begin with a short summary of the classical theory of nonlinear optics, that is nonlinear optics done with classical fields.
