A formalism is developed, by means of boson Second Quantization Theory, which is particularly suitable for the description of the cooperative behavior of n-level systems or the macroscopic description of laser-type matter. It is shown that semiclassical radiation theory represents the fully classical limit of this formalism. The theory of quantum beats in the spontaneous emission from three-level atoms is analyzed, and criteria for the presence of beats that differ from those found in the recent literature are obtained.
