Evanescent waves and the van Cittert Zernike theorem in cylindrical geometry
The cylindrical angular spectrum of the wavefield is introduced. In this representation the field consists of homogeneous as well as evanescent waves. The representation is applied to propagation problems and an analogue of van Cittert Zernike theorem is obtained in cylindrical geometry.

Extremum uncertainty product and sum states
We consider the states with extremum products and sums of the uncertainties in non-commuting observables. These are illustrated by two specific examples of harmonic oscillator and the angular momentum states. It shows that the coherent states of the harmonic oscillator are characterized by the minimum uncertainty sum 〈(Δ

Intensity fluctuations in thermal light with orthogonally polarised multiple-peak spectrum
The moment generating function of the integrated light intensity of thermal radiation having multiple peak spectrum is obtained. Cases of two-peak and three-peak spectra where different peaks are in orthogonal states of polarisation are considered. The moment generating function is shown to be the product of two simpler generating functions.

Two-mode para-Bose number states
Two-mode para-Bose number states are discussed. The two-mode system has been chosen as it is a representative of the multi-mode system. Salient properties like normalization, orthogonality and degeneracy of these states have also been discussed.
