In this survey, we present single-photon states of electromagnetic fields, discuss discrete measurements of a single-photon field, show how a linear quantum system responds to a single-photon input, investigate how a coherent feedback network can be used to manipulate the temporal pulse shape of a single-photon state, present single-photon filter and master equations, and finally discuss the generation of Schrödinger cat states by means of photon addition and subtraction.
