Paper Abstract

Instabilities in various classes of lasers are now well recognized phenomena, and in recent years these phenomena have become increasingly well understood. Tor most purposes gas lasers have been found to the easiest systems to study, and many of the instability effects found in gas lasers have been at least qualitatively modelled. In our meeting presentation we review some of the basic concepts of laser instability modelling with emphasis on results pertaining to gas lasers. The more qualitative aspects of the presentation are briefly summarized in these notes.
