Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

Before answering, please see our policy on resource recommendation questions. Please write substantial answers that detail the style, content, and prerequisites of the book, paper or other resource. Explain the nature of the resource so that readers can decide which one is best suited for them rather than relying on the opinions of others. Answers containing only a reference to a book or paper will be removed!

Hi tlengman, I am not sure if you are expecting a list as an answer to your question or if you would be happy with just some explained pointers to the relevant literature. Questions asking for a list are not a good idea here, maybe you should adapt the title a bit. – Dilaton Jan 9 '13 at 20:47
Hi tlengman, and welcome to Physics Stack Exchange! This site is not really a good place for open-ended list questions like the one you're asking. If you can edit it to make a more specific request, I'll be happy to reopen it. – David Z Jan 9 '13 at 20:48
Okay, thank you for the tips. I'll try to ask questions that are more relevant to the stackexchange model in the future. – tlengman Jan 9 '13 at 21:45
I think asking about a recent review article concerning the topic would probably be ok (if you could edit this question) since it would not be asking for a list anymore. If you are done with editing you could ping a mod (with the @) and ask for reopen. – Dilaton Jan 9 '13 at 22:44
Thanks @Dilaton, do you think it would be okay to ask if anyone is familiar with the foundational literature? Like the first paper published on polaritons? – tlengman Jan 10 '13 at 5:25
