Instabilities in optical systems form a very rich and exciting field of work. A great deal of theoretical effort has been devoted to understanding the complex behavior observed in the experiments. Active optical systems such as the laser have attracted more attention than passive systems; among the latter, the driven cavity filled with a collection of two-state atoms represents a canonical system in optical physics. Its study has shown optical bistability, instabilities, higher-order dynamical states and non-classical quantum statistics of the transmitted field.
