Paper Abstract

In this lecture I consider the question of characterization of nonclassical light in terms of measurable quantities. I show that there are many situations where the usual methods based on the Q and S parameters fail and which call for new measures of the nonclassical light. I also present newer methods of producing nonclassical states of quantum systems.
