    The degree of second-order coherence g[sup (2)] (t) and its frequency-dependent formula of a two-longitudinal-mode laser (simply called two-mode laser) are derived from the quantum theory of light. The quasi-periodicity, frequency-dependent characteristics and photon statistics properties of...
