This is a semiclassical quantum formulation of mode mixing in nonlinear media employing Glaubers P-representation of the statistical density operator. Coupled mode equations are derived from Maxwells equations and Hamiltonians are found which generate the coupled mode equations through Hamiltons equations of motion. The state of the system is determined by postulating that a maximum entropy state will be approached if all controlled sources are turned off. An expression representing the statistics of frequency conversion is derived and the noise in an up converter employing a quantum counter is determined. Author
