Paper Abstract

The higher-order terms in the expansion of ln(1 + pu) with respect to the pumping regularity p are considered. The effects of higher-order terms, due to regular pumping, on the photon statistics are found to be significant in maser cases, and can be neglected in laser cases. The right order approximation must be used to ensure correct results.
