The publisher has the merit to convince the author first against his
reluctance to prepare this compendium of reprints but it is a rare case
where this was so successful that a second extended edition was necessary.
It contains the most outstanding work which led to the Nobel Price for the
author who started from the work of one of the pioneers on spectroscopy
for the laser, Nobel Lauerate Alfred Kastler.
